Five kilograms of crystal meth, an extremely dangerous drug, have been seized by Rapid Action Battlion (RAB) on Saturday from Jatrabari area in the capital.
Two persons, including one of the mastermind Hossain alias Khokon, were detained during the seizure.
The seized meth, also known as 'ice', is the largest consignment in the country, said RAB's legal and media wing ASP ANM Imran Khan.
They also recovered a foreign firearm and bullets from their possessions, he added.
Ice contains 100 per cent pure methamphetamine, making it one of the most dangerous narcotics in the world. The drug has been found in Bangladesh for the past couple of years.
