The Special Action Group of the Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) Unit has arrested Geneva camp Yaba kingpin Farhana Akter Papia, 25, and her husband drug dealer Jainal Abedin Pachu, 29. 

The two were arrested from the Lalbagh area in Dhaka on Thursday night. Police recovered 20,000 yaba pills, one firearm, five bullets, and a huge cache of explosives from their possession. 

Confirming the matter, Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Deputy Commissioner (Media) Masudur Rahman said Papia and Pachu had gone into hiding after the crackdown on drug dealers by law enforcement agencies began. Subsequently, a team from the Special Action Group conducted a raid in Lalbagh area on the basis of information from intelligence sources, and arrested Papia and Pachu while they were transporting 10,000 yaba pills. 

Later, 10,000 more yaba pills, the firearm, bullets, and explosives were recovered from Papia and Pachu’s Lalbagh hideout based on information gleaned from them in the initial interrogation, the DMP commissioner added.

Masudur Rahman further said that several cases against Papia and Pachu under the Drugs and Arms Act were pending with various police stations, including Mohammadpur and Motijheel. 

According to police sources, Papia controlled the drug trade in the Mohammadpur-Adabar area. She entered the illegal business after learning the drug trade from her husband Pachu, and was well known for using beautiful young women to conduct her drug deals.

Locals of Geneva camp said Papia had been arrested several times before, but always returned to the drug trade after being released on bail. 

They added that she has become a millionaire from running the illegal drug business.
