High Point (NC), U.S.
Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) personnel seized 553 pieces of wet salted goat skins from Putkhali border area under Benapole Port Police station control last week.
After a tip-off, a team of BGB 23 Battalion raided the area around 5:30am and recovered the raw skins worth around Tk4 lakh (US$5,178), foiling a smuggling ring through the border by a gang of smugglers, said Abdur Rahim, commanding officer of the battalion. The smugglers, however, managed to flee the area, sensing the presence of the law enforcers, the officer added. A case was filed with Benapole port police station and the seized goat skins were deposited to Benapole Customs House later the same day.
