Bangladeshi Expat Arrested At Bahrain Airport For Smuggling Drugs

A Bangladeshi national, who attempted to smuggle drugs into Bahrain, has been sentenced to 10 years in jail and BD 5,000 fine by the High Criminal Court.

He was arrested for carrying one kilogram of marijuana along with 900 narcotic pills at the Bahrain International Airport.


A wooden tool used to smoke marijuana was found in his luggage. During questioning, the defendant admitted to a smuggling bid.

“I travelled recently to my country and I stayed for five days, during which I smoked marijuana. I met a person and he requested me to deliver some drugs to Bahrain for BD200.”

The defendant will be deported once he completes his jail time.
