The news came to media attention when the accused were produced before a Dhaka court

In a bizarre turn of events, five policemen have been arrested while distributing yaba pills among themselves in Dhaka. 

The matter came to light when they were produced at a Dhaka court on Monday and put on remand.

The accused are Gulshan police station Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Masud Ahmed Miyaji, Armed Police Battalion (APBn) Constables Proshanto Mandal, Rony Mollah, Shariful Islam and Nayek Jahangir Alam. 

Nizamul Haque Mollah, commanding officer of 1-APBn, confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune.

He said: “On information, a police team raided an APBn barracks in Uttara [yesterday], and three constables were found distributing yaba pills among themselves.

“Upon frisking Proshanto, 158 pills were recovered on the spot. Afterwards, the team moved to his room where another 394 pills were discovered,” Nizamul added. 

The law enforcers also recovered Tk15,000 from Shariful’s possession, which came from selling the drug item, the APBn officer added.

Proshanto confessed that they stole the yaba pills after seizing them from a person at a Gulshan check post near the Gudaraghat area on September 11, the APBn CO said.

“The person who was carrying the yaba pills was later released from police custody in exchange for money,” he said. 

“After that, ASI Masud himself kept 200 yaba pills while Nayek Jahangir kept 150 pills,” Nizamul said, adding that a case was filed with the Uttara East police station against the five policemen, who were handed over to the station later.

Uttara East Police Inspector Poritosh Mondol, also the investigation officer of the case, said they produced the five accused before the Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate's Court, seeking seven days remand.

But the court granted a three-day demand for ASI Masud, Constable Proshanto and Nayek Jahangir, and two days for the other two.
