The Detective Branch (DB) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) will investigate the case filed against businessperson Helena Jahangir for spreading propaganda on social media.

The accused, arrested after a raid at her Gulshan house on Thursday night, was put on a three-day remand on Friday. The court ordered the police to submit report in the case on September 12.

Apart from the DSA case, four more cases were filed against her.

The police on Sunday showed her arrested in two other cases fled with Gulshan police station over seizure of alcohol from her house and with Pallabi police for operating Joyjatra IPTV without authorization.

On Thursday night, RAB raided Helena’s house for four hours and recovered liquor, walkie-talkies, casino equipment and deerskin. On Friday, RAB conducted a raid at the offices of Joyjatra IPTV and Joyjatra Foundation.

RAB said that they had arrested her on charges of attempting to defame important state institutions and individuals by spreading lies, propaganda and misleading information using digital platforms.

Helena is a director of the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industries (FBCCI), and chairperson of Joyjatra IPTV.

On July 25, Helana lost membership of the Awami League subcommittee on women affairs for her involvement with “Bangladesh Awami Chakrijibi League”, an organization with no affiliation with the ruling party.
