Biman staff held with 38 gold bars

Armed Police Battalion (APBn) yesterday detained two staff members of Biman Bangladesh Airlines and recovered 38 gold bars, weighing around four kilogrammes, at Dhaka airport.
Both detainees — Emdad Hossain Chowdhury, 46, and Abdur Rahim, 35 — are traffic helpers of Biman, said Alamgir Hossain Shimul, additional superintendent (ops and media) of APBn.
The officer said the gold bars were brought to the airport from Thailand through a cargo around 12:45pm, and Emdad collected them from the import cargo area.
As Emdad had no security pass and ID card with him, officials became suspicious and detained him. They took him to the hanger gate area and recovered the gold bars after searching him, Alamgir said. Based on his information, the officials arrested his accomplice Rahim from the airport, he added.
