Gold bars worth Tk22 crore seized at Benapole: BGB

UNB, Dhaka :

Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) have claimed to have detained two men and seized gold bars worth nearly Tk22.45 crore from the border areas in Benapole in the last two days.

BGB detained Omar Faruk, 27, and Farhad Hossain, 32, of Chandpur district with 112 gold bars worth Tk15.65 crore, weighing 16.5kg, from the Amrakhali border area in Benapole Wednesday, Lieutenant Colonel Minhaj Ahmed Siddique, commanding officer of BGB 21, said.

Meanwhile, another BGB team seized 82 gold bars worth Tk6.80 crore, weighing 9.5kg, from Benapole's Panchbhulot border area Thursday.

"The smuggler, identified as Mohammad Mehdi (25) of Jashore's Benapole, fled the area after being chased by a BGB team, leaving his motorcycle and a bag with the gold behind," said Lieutenant Colonel Tanveer Ahmed, commanding officer of BGB 21 Battalion.

Legal actions will be taken against those involved in the gold smuggling, the commanding officers said.
