Cox’s Bazar police seize 2 million yaba pills in July
Law enforcers seized more than two million yaba pills worth over Tk62 crore from different areas of Cox’s Bazar district in July. In the same month, 155 cases were filed against 247 people who were detained for their involvement in yaba trading. “Drug peddlers have become active along the border,” Soumen Mondol, director of Narcotics Control Department in Cox’s Bazar, told the Dhaka Tribune. “Our drive against drug smuggling is being hampered due to lack of manpower but still we are trying our level best to control smuggling.” Additional Superintendent of Police Afruzul Haque Tutul told the Dhaka Tribune that the District-level force has declared a zero tolerance policy against all kinds of narcotics including yaba. “Police are conducting anti-drug drives in border areas in coordination with BGB and other law enforcement agencies,” he said. BGB 34 Commanding Officer Lt Col Monjurul Islam said the force had seized 69,155 pieces of yaba pills and detained 20 people last month. “Apart from guarding the border, the BGB personnel are working relentlessly to stop crimes, smuggling and illegal entry,” he said. BGB 2 Deputy Commanding Officer Lt Col Shariful Islam Jomaddar said they had increased vigilance in sea routes and Naf River and they seized more than 1,500,000 yaba pills in July alone. In addition to local police and the BGB, the elite Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), highway police, coastguard, and the Navy are also working to stop yaba trading. RAB 7 Company Commander Maj Ruhul Amin said the elite force had been playing a special role in preventing yaba smuggling on both land and sea routes.
