Yaba worth Tk75 crore seized, 12 detained in Chittagong
Twelve men, including five Myanmar nationals, have been detained with 1.5 million pieces of contraband yaba tablet from Chittagong Port's outer anchorage. The tablets have an estimated street value of Tk75 crore, Rab-7 Commanding Officer Col Miftauddin Ahmed said, reports Bangla Tribune. A Rapid Action Battalion 7 team raided a trawler in the Bay on Saturday morning after being tipped off that members of a smuggler gang were bringing a huge consignment of yaba. “Our team located a trawler and chased it down,” Miftauddin told the Bangla Tribune. “We found the contraband tablet hidden in the vessel.” He identified the detained Rohingyas as Md Ismail, 20, Md Abdul Khalek, 20, Md Saddam Hossain, 19, Nur Alam, 25, and Md Selim, 20 – all residents of Teknaf Rohingya refugee camp. The other detainees are Nazir Ahmed alias Dulla Majhi, 55, Khairul Amin, 20, Md Hashem, 19, Md Zafar, 30, Md Khokon, 25, Anisur Rahman, 18, hailing from Maheshkhali upazila; and one Md Sadek, 25, from Bandarban. RAB 7 commander Miftauddin said the detainees had told them that the yaba tablets were being taken to one Md Mamtaj alias Faruk, a resident of Patia upazila's Nanderkhil area. “The trawler had been used to smuggle yaba in the guise of a fishing boat for a long time,” the RAB officer said. “Although it is registered under Md Sadek's name, its real owner is Momtaj. We are trying to arrest him.”
