Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) members recovered 10,000 pieces of contraband Yabi tablets and arrested three alleged drug traders from the capital's Mohammadpur Townhall kitchen market area on Thursday evening. 

The arrestees are Md Belal Daria, 26, Alamgir Hossain, 23, and Mahbubur Rahman, 24. 

Assistant Director (Media) of the RAB-2 ASP Md Saiful Malik said that based on a secret information, a team of RAB-2 battalion conducted a drive at Mohammadpur Townhall kitchen market at 6:15 pm. Sensing the presence of the law enforcers, the trio tried to flee. 

They chased the drug traders and caught them. After interrogation, the elite force members recovered the Yaba tablets from their possessions. 

During preliminary interrogation, they revealed that they usually bring the contraband item from Cox's Bazar and then supply those to different areas in the city, he said.
