COXS BAZAR, May 17: Members of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) seized 4.025 kilogrammes of crystal methamphetamine (ice) and detained a man during separate drives in Teknaf and Ramu upazilas of Coxs Bazar on Thursday night.

The detainee is Md Nur Mohammad, 39 of Paschim Paglir Beel area of Ukhiya upazila of the district.
Lt Col Md Mohiuddin, Commander of the BGB-2 in Teknaf, said they conducted a drive in Lambori Ghat area adjacent to Teknaf-Coxs Bazar Marine Drive Road, after being tipped-off that a haul of drugs would be smuggled from neighbouring country Myanmar via waterway.

As a man was spotted coming to the Marine Drive Road from the Ghat with a bag, the frontier forces signalled him to halt, but the suspect fled towards a forest, leaving the bag, said the BGB official.

Though the man could not be detained, the bag left by him was recovered, he said, adding that a total of 2.045 kg of drugs was recovered from it. Efforts were on to find the drug dealer.
