Md Asad was later handed over to Shahbagh police

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has arrested an Ansar member with yaba tablets in his possession from Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) area.

Md Asad, 35, was arrested early Monday. He was later handed over to Shahbagh police.  

Confirming the matter, RAB 3 Commanding Officer (CO) Md Emranul Hasan told the Dhaka Tribune: “We are conducting anti-narcotics drives in different areas. 

“On the basis of information we had received, a team of RAB conducted the raid in the hospital area at around 1:30am and arrested Asad with nine yaba tablets.”

He was later handed over to Shahbagh police after primary interrogation, the CO added.

CO Emranul also said Asad admitted to being involved in the yaba trade.

“He [Asad] gave us some information. We are working on it,” he said.     

Shahbagh police station Officer-in-Charge (OC) Abul Hossain said the accused has been sent to jail. 

DMCH Director Brig Gen AKM Nasir Uddin said: “We had received information about yaba traders in the hospital area. Based on that, we sent a letter to police, RAB and intelligence agencies, informing them about the matter five to six days ago.” 

“Two or three others might also be involved with him in the drug trade. Police is looking into the matter,” he added.

High officials of Ansar also visited their camp and advised their members to stay away from the drug trade. 

Law enforcement agencies have stepped up anti-drug operations across Bangladesh since the beginning of May. So far, about 132 people, mostly alleged drug dealers, have been killed and scores of others arrested since the drives began a month ago.
