 Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has claimed to have nabbed two drug peddlers with over 350 bottles of Phensedyl from the capital’s Jatrabari area.
The arrestees have been identified as Md Jewel, 36, and Md Sakhawat Hossain, 32.
On a tip-off from the intelligence wing, a Rab-3 team set up a couple of checkposts in the Jatrabari area on Friday night and managed to nab the peddlers travelling in a car around 10.30pm.
As many as 353 bottles of Phensedyl and their car have been seized, the Rab said a release on Saturday.
During initial interrogation, the duo admitted to their involvement in durg peddling. "They used to source Phensidyl from Cumilla and sold the same across Dhaka," said Beena Rani Das, Rab assistant director (operations and intelligence branch).
A case has been filed against the arrestees at the Jatrabari police station, she added.
