The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) Saturday detained two men and sized narcotics from their possession.
One of the detainees was identified as Khokon, the ringleader of the syndicate based in Teknaf upazila of Cox’s Bazar.
Acting on a tip-off, a RAB team conducted a drive in the Jatrabari area and arrested Khokon and one of his associates, an official said.
