Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on Friday arrested one person along with 10,000 contraband yaba tablets from Mohakhali area in the capital, reports BSS.

A team of RAB-2 conducted a raid on a bus of Shyamoli Paribahan in the city’s Mohakhali railgate area this morning and seized 10,000 yaba pills from the bus.

Searching the bus, the RAB personnel recovered 10,000 yaba pills and arrested bus driver Noor-e-Alam, 42, in connection with the incident, superintendent of police Modiuddin Faruqi of RAB-2 confirmed.

He said Noor-e-Alam was a carrier of yaba smuggling as the bus driver smuggled the contraband tablets into the capital from Cox’s Bazar in the past too.

Faruqi said the yaba pills RAB seized today came to Chakaria upazila from Myanmar via Ramu of Cox’s Bazar.

And then Noor-e-Alam received those at Chakaria and brought the contraband tablets to the capital, he said.
