The arrestee will be handed over to Teknaf police
Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) members detained a man with 1.5kg of 'Ice', a form of methamphetamine, at Gotherbil in Teknaf upazila Wednesday.
Confirming the information, Lt Col Md Faisal Hasan Khan, commanding officer of BGB Battalion 2 of Teknaf said Md Abdul Majid was arrested from a three-story building in the area.
When a BGB patrol team signalled Majid’s bike to halt he turned his bike around, initiating a chase off.
At one stage, Majid left the bike and ran inside a building.
The BGB team cordoned off the building and arrested Majid.
Two bags containing 1.5kg of crystal meth were seized from him, said Lt Col Md Faisal.
The arrestee will be handed over to Teknaf police and a case will be filed at the police station over the drug bust, he added.
The same BGB team arrested Md Mujib, 20, along with 2kg of crystal meth from Mithapanichara of Teknaf last weeks.
Crystal meth, also known as ‘ice’, is a powerful drug that affects the central nervous system. It comes in the form of clear crystals or shiny blue-white rocks.
