‘Drug smuggling prevention is emerging challenge’
Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal on Sunday said Bangladesh does not produce any illegal drug but prevention of drug smuggling through border has emerged as a challenge for the country. He made the remark at the Chittagong Circuit House while attending a special law and order committee meeting as chief guest. “Yaba has been smuggled through Myanmar border and we have talked to Myanmar government about it. Be it for their internal policy or for their go-slow policy, we did not see any expected result over the issue,” the minister said. According to the Department of Narcotics Control, yaba pills are being manufactured in at least 40 factories near the Myanmar border. “There was a time when India used to produce Phensedyl. However, India has stopped manufacturing Phensedyl and the drug does not enter in Bangladesh through border anymore,” the home boss said. He also said it is difficult to prevent drug smuggling by only arresting smugglers if not a massive awareness takes place in the society. Officials of government agencies, law enforcement agencies and public representatives attended the programme. Among others, Shamsul Arefin, deputy commissioner of Chittagong, lawmaker Nazrul Islam, SM Mostain Hossain, deputy commissioner of Chittagong Metropolitan Police, Noor E Alam Mina, superintendent of Chittagong police, and Lt Col Miftah Uddin Ahmed, commanding officer of RAB 7, were present at the meeting.
