Gold worth Tk 3.51cr seized at Panchagarh

Members of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) seized 20 gold bars worth Tk 3.51 crore from Ramjan Para along the Atwari border area in Panchagarh district on Tuesday (December 5).

Acting on a tip-off that a huge consignment of gold will be smuggled through the India-Bangladesh border area, a team of BGB-18 conducted a drive in the area in the morning, said Commanding officer of BGB-18, Lt Col Zubayed Hasan.

The BGB team challenged a man near main pillar number 410 in the border area at 11:30 am.

Sensing danger, the man managed to flee the scene leaving behind a bag containing gold bars.

Later, the BGB team seized 20 gold bars.
