Suspect trawler hurls 4 lakh Yaba overboard before fleeing

Members of Bangladesh Coast Guard early Thursday seized around 400,000 pieces of Yaba pills from the coast of St. Martin's Island in Teknaf.

 

Teknaf Coast Guard Station in-charge lieutenant commander Rayhan Tarik said they challenged a trawler that came from Myanmar’s side in the early hours noticing its suspicious movements.

 

After being challenged the trawler along with the smugglers fled after throwing a sack on the sea.

Later, after recovering and opening the sack they found 4,55,000 Yaba pills, he said.
