72,000 yaba pills seized

Bangladesh Coast Guard (BCG) seized 72,000 Yaba tablets from a boat in the Naf River at Shahparir Dip of Teknaf in Cox’s Bazar early on Sunday.

Tipped off that a large consignment of yaba from Myanmar was entering into Bangladesh’s territory, a team of BCG Teknaf Station and Shahparir Dip Outpost took position in the Naf River at Jaliapara, said a press release. 

The BCG team signaled the boat to stop but the smugglers jumped into the river and swam away.
