Suspect flees from border guard troops leaving gold bars behind

Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB) has seized 11 gold bars worth Tk 2.35 crore from a person near the international border in Chuadanga.

Acting on a tip-off, a team from BGB-6 battalion conducted a raid in the Thakurpur area of the district's Damurhuda upazila on Wednesday and spotted the alleged smuggler, said Nistar Ahmed, additional director of the battalion.
