13 drug traffickers have been shot dead by Bangladesh Police and thousands arrested in an aggressive campaign against drug smuggling.
The police informed that around 2,300 suspected drug traffickers and users had been arrested in raids since early May; drugs worth around 2.5 million dollars had been seized.
It may be mentioned here that the authorities had warned traffickers to surrender last week.
