Bringing Sohel Rana back may not be possible as he is an accused in a case filed by the Indian authority

Police inspector Sheikh Sohel Rana, who has been held in India for illegal entry into the country, is unlikely to be repatriated to Bangladesh as he is facing a case in the neighbouring country.

Indian media reported that Sohel was arrested on Friday near the Changrabandha border under Cooch Behar in the Indian state of West Bengal on his way to Nepal.

A Cooch Behar judicial magistrate court remanded him for three days in police custody in the trespassing case filed with the Mekhliganj police station when he was produced before the court on Saturday.

Contacted, Dhaka Metropolitan Police Commissioner (DMP) Md Shafiqul Islam told UNB that they will try to bring back Sohel Rana but it may not possible at this moment as he is an accused in a case in India filed by the Indian authority. 

He said that “We will try to bring him back but it will not be possible because we are not sure that they will hand over him to us until the case is settled.”

Since the case has been filed in India, “we do not know whether they will give him to us without trial, he further said.

Sohel and nine others were accused in a case filed on Thursday with the Gulshan police station on charges of embezzling money of customers of e-orange, allegedly owned by Sohel and his family members.

Before fleeing the country he was posted at Banani Police Station as inspector (investigation).

Contacted, officer-in-charge of Banani Police Station Nur-e-Azam said Sohel was on duty last Thursday but he had been absent since Friday morning.

Inspector Sohel is reportedly involved with e-commerce platform E-orange. He apparently left his workplace without permission after E-orange customers filed the case with Gulshan police station. His sister and brother-in-law, who used to run the company, are in jail now.
