Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) on Saturday detained two Myanmarese nationals with drugs worth nearly Tk 7 crore in Cox's Bazar.

The detainees have been identified as Zubair Ahmed, 22, son of Siraj Uddin, and Md Rafique, 23, son of Abdul Goni of Maungdaw in Myanmar.

Following up on a hint, a BGB-2 team intercepted a boat in the Naf river and detained the two drug peddlers, said the commanding officer of Teknaf Battalion-2, Lt Col Sheikh Khalid Mohammad Iftekhar.

The smugglers attempted to escape by jumping into the river yet were eventually caught, he said. "Approximately 54,000 Yaba pills and 1.069kg of crystal meth worth Tk 7 crore were seized from their possession."
