The Rapid Action Battalion detained six people along with 40,000 contraband Yaba pills from a microbus in the city’s Golapbag area on Saturday afternoon.
The elite force also recovered uniforms of a fake security service company ‘SISS’, including caps, name badges and reflector belts from them. Based on secret information, a RAB-10 team challenged a microbus in the area around 5:00pm and recovered the Yaba consignment upon searching the microbus, said ASP Jahid Hasan of RAB-10.
The elite force detained the six people from the microbus for their suspected involvement in Yaba peddling, ASP Jahid said.
During preliminary interrogation, they reportedly confessed to RAB that they used to bring the drugs from Teknaf in Cox’s Bazar and peddled them in various districts of the country, including Dinajpur, Gazipur and Dhaka.
