drug smuggling

Badi not guilty, certifies Kamal

UNB

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan yesterday said ruling Awami League lawmaker Abdur Rahman Badi’s involvement was not found in any drug smuggling cases, reports UNB. Replying to a question about Badi’s involvement of in Yaba trading, the minister said allegations against Badi could not be proved. He also said despite an ongoing drive against the contraband pills in Teknaf, it is not possible to contain its use unless awareness is created among the mass people. The home boss was talking to reporters after attending an officers’ conference at Department of Narcotics Control (DNC) at Tejgaon in the capital. He said the government will provide firearms to field level narcotics officials who run the risk of being attacked during anti-narcotics drives.
“A proposal for providing firearms for the Department of Narcotics Control officials has already been submitted to the ministry and we’ re considering it,” he said.  Noting that the field level DNC officers require bravery to carry out their work, Asaduzzaman said they can seek assistance from law enforcers before conducting any anti-narcotics drive to avoid life risk. He also observed that addiction to drugs, especially contraband Yaba tablets, has taken a serious turn, saying this is hampering the implementation of Vision-2021. About enhancing the capability of DNC, he said initiatives have already taken to increase manpower and logistic supports so that activities of the department become visible. DNC Director General Rakibur Rahman chaired the programme.
