With one police jeep in front and another behind, four buses brought 102 yaba godfathers and dealers to Teknaf Model Primary School from Cox’s Bazar Police Lines around 9:00am yesterday.
Later around 11:45am, they were taken to Teknaf Pilot School field where all was set for a surrender ceremony. They entered the venue walking on foot under heavy police protection, waving at the crowd.
Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan and Inspector General of Police Mohammad Javed Patwary received them with flowers while thousands of locals, waiting there since 8:00am, broke into applause.
Police had made a seating arrangement for five thousand, but the school ground was teeming with people by 9:00am, one and a half hours before the programme began.
