The Bangladesh Coast Guard has seized 420,000 yaba tablets left behind by smugglers fleeing the law enforcers. The black market value of the stash is nearly Tk 210 million, the Coast Guard said in a statement.

A Coast Guard team led by Station Commander Jafar Imam Shojib took up positions on the north end of St Martin's Island on Friday night based on a tip-off, according to the statement.

The team noticed a passing trawler and commanded it to stop. The smugglers then abandoned their boat and fled. The stash was found wrapped in polythene during a search of the trawler.
