Arms, ammo, drugs seized from Ruma
Two Russian SMGs, 12 rounds of SMG ammunitions, three magazines, three rounds of pistol ammunitions, a knife, 100 gm cannabis, 100 gm opium, 750 ml locally made liquor, one solar charger and a combat bag were seized in a raid at a miscreants’ den in Ruma upazila of Bandarban ISPR

A gunfight also took place between the Army personnel and miscreants during the raid 

Members of the Bangladesh Army stationed at Ruma in Bandarban have recovered several firearms, ammunition and some narcotics among other items after carrying out a raid at a hideout of armed miscreants.

However, no one could be arrested during the operation, which saw a trade of bullets between the miscreants and the army personnel, according to the Inter-Services Public Relations press release issued on Tuesday.

During the raid, two Russian submachine guns (SMGs), 12 rounds of SMG ammunition, three magazines, three rounds of pistol ammunition, a knife, 100 gm cannabis, 100 gm opium, 750 ml locally made liquor, one solar charger and a combat bag were seized.

The troublemakers had been extorting and carrying out other criminal acts in the area by keeping the poor at gunpoint, according to ISPR. As they were reported to the law enforcers, the army conducted the raid at midnight.

Sensing their presence, the miscreants opened fire, causing the army personnel to retaliate with gunshots. But at one stage, the miscreants fled the scene, leading to the recovery of the arms, ammunition and drug items. 

The miscreants were also engaged in spreading propaganda against the country and security forces through social media.
