RAB has detained a Rohingya man with 5 lakh pieces of yaba at Ukhiya in Cox's Bazar. At the time, crossfire took place between RAB and the drug traffickers.

The incident took place in Balukhali of the upazila around 12:30 pm on Sunday. The arrested Syed Hossain is a resident of Balukhali Rohingya camp.

Major Sheikh Yusuf Ahmed, CPC commander of RAB-15, said that RAB took position in Balukhali Bridge area on Sunday night on the news that a consignment of yaba would enter the country from Myanmar. At that time, when a group of drug dealers saw an oncoming signal to stop, they fired at the RAB. The drug dealers retreated when the RAB also fired back in self-defense. Later, one person was arrested along with 5 lakh pieces of yaba.

He added that it has been confirmed that the arrested youth is a resident of Balukhali Rohingya camp. During primary interrogation, he confessed of being involved in yaba trafficking.

A case has been registered against him and he has been handed over to Ukhia police station.
