Police have recovered huge quantities of TCB goods from the house of Abul Hossain Khalifa, office secretary of Bakerganj Upazila Awami League in Barishal.
After locals called 999 with information that TCB goods were hoarded illegally at Khalifa's house, Bakerganj police in a drive on Wednesday evening recovered 1,000 liters of soybean oil, 500 kg of sugar and 500 kg of lentils from the leader’s house.
Bakerganj Police Station OC Satya Ranjan Khaskel said that a team of Bakerganj Police Station went to Abul Hossain Khalifa's house and recovered TCB goods after the locals called 999.
