BGB seizes USD 80,000 from Chuadanga border

Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) members seized USD 80,000 from Fulbari border in Damurhuda upazila of Chuadanga district Wednesday morning while those were being smuggled to India.

However, BGB couldn’t detain the suspected smuggler who was carrying the foreign currency.

The information was revealed at a press briefing at 6 BGB Headquarters in the afternoon.

According to BGB, upon secret information, they conducted a drive along Fulbari border and found a person trying to cross the border with a bag through pillar No 85.

The person left the bag and fled when BGB members chased him.

The BGB men found eight bundles of US dollars amounting to USD 80,000 inside the bag.

Lieutenant Colonel Shah Md Ishtiak, Director of BGB Chuadanga-6, said a case was filed with Darshana Police Station in this regard.

“Primarily, we’re suspected that the foreign currency was being smuggled from Bangladesh to India,” said Ishtiaque.
