BGB finds 2,500 Yaba pills in smugglers’ stomach

They have been identified as Dhaka’s Billal Hossain, 41, and a 14 year old girl from Teknaf, whose identity was not disclosed.
BGB Battalion 2 Commander Lt Col Abu Jar Al Jahid said, both of them were detained at a BGB check post near Cox’s Bazar Marine Drive Road around 3pm on Tuesday.
The BGB official told, they were held from a Cox’s Bazar-bound bus for arousing suspicion.
“When we quizzed them, they confessed to swallowing Yaba tablets wrapped in polythene,” he added.
Later, BGB recovered 10 pouches from the girl’s stomach and 15 from Billal’s.
A total of 2,500 tablets were found inside those pouches, Jahid said.
