Myanmar nationals among 8 held with yaba pills worth Tk24cr
A team of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has detained eight yaba peddlers, including six Myanmar nationals, along with some 6 lakh yaba pills in Patenga area of Chittagong city. The Myanmar nationals are: Nur Kabir, 40, Jamal Hossain, 45, Bashir Ahmed, 35, Jabi Ullah, 25, Bashir Ullah, 25, and Akter Hossain, 23, all used to live at Kutupalong Rohingya Refugee Camp in Ukhiya upazila of Cox’s Bazar. The two Bangladeshis are: Ali Johar, 38, and Md Shahjahan, 45. “The drug peddlers were arrested in the Sluice Gate area of Patenga on Sunday at 3pm during a drive led by RAB-7 Commanding Officer Lt Col Miftah Uddin Ahmed,” RAB-7 Senior Assistant Director (media) Mimtanur Rahman told the Dhaka Tribune. Around 6 lakh yaba pills, worth Tk24 crore, were also seized from their possession,” Mimtanur added. During a primary interrogation, the arrestees confessed to bringing in the pills from Myanmar, the RAB official claimed, adding that they were taking legal actions against them. According to local sources, the drug peddlers, masquerading as fish traders, had long been bringing in the contraband pills from Myanmar. And, they used to unload yaba consignments at the dead of night in Chittagong’s Gohira, Anwara, Patenga, Halishahar beach, Bhatiari and Kumira areas. Rab-7 has thus far seized around 80 lakh pieces of yaba only in the last two and a half months.
