Man held with drugs in Teknaf

Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) has detained a man and seized over 1 kg crystal methamphetamine and 50,000 Yaba pills in separate drives across Teknaf upazila of Cox’s Bazar, reports UNB.

The detainee has been identified as Md Faruk, 30, son of Nur Ahmed of the upazila. Acting on a tip-off, a BGB-2 team intercepted a boat coming from Myanmar in the Naf River at 6.30pm on Friday and detained Faruk as he tried to escape, the force said in a release.

While the BGB men seized 30,000 Yaba tablets worth Tk 90 lakh from him, a subsequent drive in the Hinla Abrang area led to the seizure of 1.06 kg crystal methamphetamine worth Tk 5.90 crore and 20,000 Yaba tablets.
