DINAJPUR: Members of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) have seized snake venom worth Tk 1.61 crore in Birampur upazila of the district.

During a drive, conducted in Shibpur area along the border on Monday night, the BGB also detained Rafiqul Islam, 40, of Hamlakuri village.

“Cobra Snake Poison of France, Red Dragon Company, Cobra Code No 80975, Made in France’ was written on a glass jar, containing the venom. Md Nayeem Rizvi, acting commanding officer of BGB-29 Battalion, informed this through a press release on Tuesday.

‘Buying and selling of snake venom is not legal in Bangladesh. Smugglers have been using the country as a route of smuggling the venom,’ he said.
