In the port city, there are over 300 spots where peddlers have been selling drugs, including yaba, for years dodging the law enforcers, according to Chittagong Metropolitan Police (CMP) officials.
Indian police use laxatives for several days to retrieve 106 cocaine capsules worth some $900,000 from the stomach of a Brazilian woman who tries to smuggle them into the country, officials said Monday.
The officials of Directorate of Narcotics Control (DNC) claim to have found a yaba factory during a raid in Narayanganj.
In the first nine months of this year, more than 60 percent of the accused got acquitted in drug-related cases, and narcotics control officials blame the poor conviction rate mainly on the faulty charge sheets and a lack of witnesses. The scenarios were almost similar in the previous two years.
