They were detained on “specific charges”, said ASP ANM Imran Khan, a spokesman for the RAB, as both Pori Moni and Raz were taken to the law-enforcing agency’s headquarters in Uttara.

RAB is likely to hold a press briefing around 4:30pm on Thursday over the detention of the actor, said Khan, an assistant director of RAB Legal and Media wing.

During the raids, RAB said they recovered 30 bottles of foreign liquor and some blotting papers that are used to distribute LSD, a hallucinogenic drug, from Pori Moni’ house and illegal items including drugs from Raz’s house.

Pori Moni, whose real name is Samsunnahar Smriti, came to light in June after demanding justice in a Facebook live for the alleged torture on her at Dhaka Boat Club on June 8.

On June 14, she filed a case against businessperson and former Uttara Club president Nasir U Mahmood and five others on charges of attempted rape and murder.
