The Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) recovered 200,000 pieces of Yaba worth Tk60 million during a drive at Teknaf, the force said on Friday.
The illegal drug was being smuggled to Bangladesh from Myanmar through Egarokani Alamgir Project area on Thursday, said BGB-2 in a press release.
A special patrol team of Whykong BOP spotted three men crossing Naf river with some plastic bags around 10:45 pm and started approaching them immediately, reports UNB.
But the smugglers managed to swim through the river and flee sensing the presence of BGB as the location was just 500 metres away from the Myanmar border.
Later the patrol team recovered the Yaba pills from the two bags they left from the spot, said BGB-2.
