Health Desk-- May 7, 2017-- Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday warned the Yaba traders in Cox's Bazar saying drug peddlers would be dealt with severely.

While addressing a public rally in Cox’s Bazar, the PM said, “Cox's Bazar earned a bad reputation as Yaba are supplied from here. Yaba supply must be stopped and those who are engaged in it must be punished”.

The premier added, “The drug peddlers won't be spared in any way.”

Hasina also called upon the people of all spheres to save their children from onslaughts of drugs, saying “It destroys family and life of the people (and) when any person takes drugs he/she loses his potency and thinking ability, gets sick and dies.”
