Suspected yaba smugglers fired targeting members of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) near Bangladesh-Myanmar border in Bandarban's Naikhyangchhari upazila last night.

The miscreants who were seen coming from Myanmar side fired targeting BGB members who were patrolling the area, BGB said in a press release.

The BGB men in self defence fired back, it said, adding the criminals fled the scene.

On information, BGB members later raided Ghumdhum's Rejuamtoli area near the border and recovered 1,40,000 yaba tablets worth around Tk 4.20 crore, our Bandarban correspondent reports quoting Lt Col Ali Haider Azad Ahmed, commanding officer of BGB-34 battalion.

No one were arrested in this connection.
