Drug stores increased in Bangladesh border area

 

Cox’s Bazar, June 15: The number of drug stores with links to illegal border trade is increasing day by day in the Bangladesh border area, reports our correspondent.

 

Local business people are opening more and more drug store because they earn huge amount of profit by smuggling out medicines to Burma, it says

 

A local Bengali newspaper, The Daily Ajker Desh Bidesh, published from Cox’s Bazar reported on June 7 that medicines are being exported illegally through smuggling channels.

 

The drugs that people are smuggling out to Burma from Bangladesh are contraceptive pills, injections and drugs used for abortion. People are also smuggling addictive substances, sources said.

 

About half a million of people living in the border area of Burma have to depend upon Bangladeshi drug and medicines due to a short central supply.  #
