Deputy director of RAB-1, Lieutenant Commander Kazi Mohammad Soyaeb, told the Dhaka Tribune that Anwar, 30 and Shariful, 26, were detained from an apartment in Uttara sector 6 with a bulk amount of Phensedyl and Phensedyl-making ingredients.
"They have been trading Phensedyl from this apartment in the guise of ready-made garment traders," Soyaeb said. "They used to score 5,000 bottles per consignment from somewhere in Joypurhat and sell them in Dhaka after mixing water as an alloy."
The RAB commander said they had their associates in Joypurhat who used to cooperate in delivering the consignments.
"Bringing the culprits to book is under process," Soyaeb added.
