"On April 30, Ashraf set out from Yangon in Myanmar with a consignment of yaba pills on a trawler," said Alak. "Later, he headed for Chattogram from Saint Martin's Island with a speedboat. The speedboat sunk in the Kutubdia Channel, on which the sacks of yaba pills were recovered with the help of local fishermen and brought to Dhaka on May 2."
