Yaba Smuggling, Possessing Illegal Arms: Charges pressed against Bodi’s 4 brothers, 97 others

They surrendered in February last year

Police yesterday submitted charge sheets before a court in Cox’s Bazar against top 101 yaba godfathers and traders, including four brothers of former Awami League lawmaker Abdur Rahman Bodi, who surrendered to the law enforcers in February last year.

The charge sheets were submitted before the court of Judicial Magistrate Tamanna Farah around 1:00pm, said Mahbubur Rahman, court inspector of Cox’s Bazar.

They were accused in two cases -- one for possessing drugs and the other for possessing firearms, said ABM S Doha, inspector of Teknaf Model Police Station.

Earlier on February 16, some 102 narcos surrendered at a programme at Teknaf Pilot High School in presence of Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal and top police officials.

Of them, one Mohammad Rasel died in jail, and as such, his name was dropped from the charge sheet, said Doha, also investigation officer of the cases.

Of the accused, eight are close relatives of Bodi.

Family members of the accused expressed their worries claiming that the government officials had earlier pledged to help the accused walk out of jail, but now they are not getting any response from the government.
