Judge held with sackful of Phensedyl

A senior assistant judge was arrested with 342 bottles of Phensedyl and a loaded pistol in the capital's New Market area last night.
The arrestee, Javed Imam, 30, is posted at Bhola district court.
He came to Dhaka from Jessore late in the evening. He was driving a microbus carrying the bottles of contraband cough syrup in a sack. Acting on a tip-off, police arrested him in front of Eden College around 7:20pm, said Syed Nurul Islam, deputy commissioner (DC-Ramna) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police.
Talking to reporters at the New Market Police Station, Javed said he joined Bhola court on November 8 from Jessore. He has been on leave for a month.
He claimed his cousin Sumon, who worked for Brac in its Kushtia office, had given him the Phensedyl consignment for one Lincoln in Dhaka.
He agreed to do it all for Tk 1.20 lakh that he needed badly.
Javed further claimed the pistol is licensed and his father Khaled Imam, a lawyer in Jhenidah, owns the microbus.
The DMP DC said they suspect Lincoln is either an informant for the law enforcers or a drug peddler.
Contacted around 2:30am today, duty officer at the New Market Police Station said a case had been filed in this connection.
