She was detained based on information given by Pori Moni and others 

Detectives took film director Chayanika Chowdhury into custody for questioning on Friday evening and released her after three hours. 

A team of DB police in plainclothes intercepted her car at Panthopoth around 6:40pm after she attended a talk show on a private television channel. 

They asked her for more than 20 minutes to get off the car but she did not comply. Later, a female constable named Dilruba, as it reads from her name badge, got in the car and sat beside Chayanika.

At that time, Chayanika said: “I don’t know anything. There is no allegation against me. They didn’t tell me anything.”

Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Deputy Commissioner of Media and Public Relations Md Faruk Hossain confirmed to BSS that they had detained her from Panthapath area at 7:30pm.

DB Joint Commissioner Harun Ur Rashid later said that Chayanika Chowdhury was interrogated for the sake of investigation, based on information gleaned from other arrestees.

"She'll come again whenever the detectives want to quiz her," he added.
