An Indian drug peddler found in possession of heroin has been jailed for life along with two Bangladeshis by a court in Khulna, a town in the west of the country.

A kg of the drug was seized from Indian national Tarak Debnath and his hosts, Alamgir Hossain and Jahangir Alam, in March last year, The Daily Star said on Tuesday.

Debnath, who carried the heroin from India, was picked up from Alamgir's house.

Illegal drugs are one of the more lucrative items smuggled across the 4,300 km border between Bangladesh and India.
