2 BNP leaders' son, daughter involved
Law enforcers have mounted watch on two top BNP leaders' children, who are allegedly involved in Yaba trade for long, said Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) after quizzing some arrested drug dealers.
Akhter Hamid Pabon, son of BNP Secretary General Khandaker Delwar Hossain, is allegedly involved in Yaba business, said a Rab official asking not to be named.
The elite force member said arrested drug baron Amin Huda and three of the six youths of well-off families also mentioned the name of the daughter of an influential minister of the immediate past BNP-led alliance government.
The former minister's daughter along with her husband is reported to have run Yaba trade, he added.
The media has also carried out reports on the involvement of Pabon and a former minister's daughter in this connection.
Rab sources said Paban is one of the leading Yaba dealers in the country. He is accused in at least a dozen criminal cases and blamed for other offences including arms and drug dealing, land grabbing and extortion.
He was arrested in March 2005 in an attempted murder case and in June 2006 in a carjacking case.
