Rab seizes 13 lakh yaba pills at Bay

Rapid Action Battalion today claimed to have seized 13 lakh pieces of yaba and arrested two Rohingyas from the Bay of Bengal in Cox's Bazar.

"We were following the movement of a trawler since Saturday. Yesterday, we chased them at deep sea. As authorities hoisted local cautionary signal number four at sea due to bad weather, the smugglers were forced to come to shore and we arrested them," Maj Mehedi Hasan, deputy director of Rab-15 told The Daily Star.
