Yaba peddling: A sweet deal
To dodge law enforcement agencies, yaba peddlers have been adopting new tactics to carry contraband drugs. A number of mules were arrested by police and officials of the Department of Narcotics Control (DNC) while smuggling in yaba, inserted into fruits such as jackfruit and betel nuts. In some cases, the drugs have been smuggled into the country in passenger's anal cavities. DNC officials have arrested an alleged mule on Monday night, in possession of 4,000 yaba pills, which were inserted into stalks of sugarcane. Md Faisal, the 22-year-old son of Delwar Hossain from Cox’s Bazar's Teknaf upazila, was arrested from the Alkoron area under Kotwali police station, said DNC officials. “Following a tip-off, DNC officials detained Faisal from the entry point of Alkoron Lane after he arrived there from Teknaf on Monday night.” Chittagong DNC Deputy Director Shameem Ahmed said: “We found 4,000 pieces of yaba in the stalks of sugarcane that he was carrying.” During the primary interrogation, Faisal also confessed that he had peddled drugs into Chittagong a few times using the same method. A case was lodged with Kotwali police station in this connection. Additionally, a man and a woman were arrested from Bayezid and Chawakbazar areas of Chittagong city with 7,000 yaba pills a day earlier.
