Smuggling through the Malda border

Malda: BJP is going to approach the home ministry with sensational information against 10 influential people. Allegations of drug and gold trafficking are behind each of the influentials owning billions of rupees. Among them there are Trinamool leaders and public representatives. BJP MP Khagen Murmu claims that they have sensational information against these 10 people of Malda district. He said that the information they have about those influential people will be handed over to Home Minister Amit Shah. He will also apply for the Central Intelligence Agency to investigate the matter.

It is alleged that smuggling of fake notes, illegal weapons as well as drugs and gold is going on on a large scale through the Malda district corridor. Drug and gold smugglers are often caught by the police and BSF. Recently CID recovered crores of rupees from the house of a fish merchant. CID claims that all this is drug trafficking money. From Phensidil to Yaba tablets, brown sugar is smuggled into Bangladesh through the India-Bangladesh border at Malda. Yaba tablets are mainly coming from Myanmar. And various influential leaders and businessmen are closely involved with this trafficking. This information has repeatedly come up in various investigations. It is alleged that several people in Malda have acquired huge properties within a short span of time. The names of some such persons have come up in the radar as well. Besides, the Central Intelligence Agency has already started to inquire about some people. This time the BJP was active in complaining to the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Regarding these influential people, BJP MP Khagen Murmu said, “Some used to sell fruits on the pavement. Now his house is like a palace. Owned a lot of property in a few years. As well as a grassroots leader. Someone worked in a nursing home, got a commission. Now owns a nursing home. Owners of many properties and businesses in no time. We have received the names of 10 such people and information about them. They are associated with drug trafficking and gold smuggling. We are sending all the information to the Ministry of Home Affairs. I will also discuss this matter with the Home Minister. Many Trinamool leaders are involved in the smuggling of phensidil, yaba tablets, brown sugar.” He didn’t name anyone though.

Regarding the issue, Trinamool district president Abdur Rahim Bakshi said, “Until now, the Central Intelligence Agency was investigating. Now the BJP has started its own investigation. Let them first investigate the people of their own party. All are becoming millionaires overnight by doing any business and building big houses. Those leaders should also be investigated for smuggling. Let those names be brought forward if they have the power.”
