Dhaka, 26 April, Abnews: Members of Border Guard Bangladesh seized 320 gold bars weighing around 37 kilogrammes from the Mathabhanga river along Nastipur border in Damurhuda upazila of Chuadanga on Wednesday noon.
Tipped off that a consignment of gold would be smuggled to India through the border, BGB members took position around no 80 pillar since the morning, said Iman Hasan, a commanding officer of BGB battalion.
The BGB team challenged three people who were moving around the pillar around 3:00pm, he said.
Sensing danger, the trio threw three bags they were carrying into the river and crossed into the Indian territory swimming across the river, reports UNB.
Later, the paramilitary force members retrieved the three bags and found 320 gold bars inside those, Iman said.
