Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) on Friday claimed to have seized drugs worth nearly Tk 114.6 million in Teknaf upazila of Cox’s Bazar, reports news agency UNB.
Acting on a tip-off, a patrol team of BGB intercepted a boat carrying a suspected smuggler in the Naf river of Teknaf upazila at around 6:50 pm heading towards the Beribadh area, said Lt. Col. Sheikh Khalid Md. Iftekhar, Commander of BGB-2 battalion.
At one stage the BGB members challenged the boat.
