DNC busts 25 dealers in response to PM’s order
Members of the Department of Narcotics Control (DNC) have arrested about 25 drug dealers from Dhaka and the surrounding areas in response to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's call on Wednesday for an immediate anti-drugs drive. The arrests were made during separate raids at Kamlapur railway station, Mugda Manda, Kadamtoli, Gandariya, Shutrapur, Mohammadpur, Uttara, Purana Paltan, Banasri, and Tejgaon rail line in Dhaka on Thursday, according to DNC officials. Contraband Yaba pills and hemp were also recovered during the raids. DNC teams with the assistance of police teams have been conducting the anti-drugs raids since Wednesday night, in response to the prime minister's order for an anti-drugs drive during the parliamentary session on Wednesday. The leaves of all DNC employees have been canceled to ensure maximum success in these raids. DNC Director General Mohammad Jamal Uddin told the Dhaka Tribune that they would chalk out a plan for further anti-drugs moves after analyzing the results of the instant raids. The raids would be continued till Saturday, he added DNC Deputy Director (Dhaka Metropolitan) Mukul Jyoti Chakma said 25 drug dealers had been arrested in the raids in Dhaka and Narayanganj as of Thursday evening. The official also reported that a small Yaba factory was discovered in Narayanganj's Bandar area. The seizure list was yet to be confirmed when this report was filed around 8pm. Mukul also noted that mobile courts would join the anti-drugs drive in the future. On a point of order during the parliamentary session on Wednesday, MP Kazi Firoz Rashid raised his concerns over drug abuse across the country. The Prime Minister provided a quick response to the issue raised by the Jatiya Party MP with the assurance of an immediate anti-drugs drive. “I am taking note of the honourable MP’s speech. We will conduct the drives today because we do not want this to continue.”
