Acting on a tip off, a team of BGB-2 intercepted a boat in which a few suspected smugglers from Myanmar were heading towards Jaliar Dwip at around 5:00am, said Commander of Teknaf Battalion (BGB-2) Lieutenant Colonel Sheikh Khalid Mohammad Iftekhar.
The alleged smugglers, however, jumped into the Naf river and managed to escape.
