3 ‘missing’ youths including another held, RAB says they are fraudsters
Four people, including the three who had allegedly been picked by unidentified men from Mohakhali in Dhaka, have been arrested from Sher-e-Bangla Nagar and Mohakhali. They are Nasir Miah,21, Rasel Gazi, 20, Abu Hanif, 14, and Shahab Uddin. A team of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB)-2 arrested the four on Monday for alleged fraudulent activities. Witnesses and families of Nasir, Rasel and Hanif claimed that “unidentified abductors” had picked up the trio up from the middle of a road in Mohakhali Wireless Gate area on Sunday around 11pm. The families lodged separate general diaries (GDs) with Banani police station after their abduction, Sub-inspector Shaheen Miah confirmed. Contacted, Banani police told their families they had not arrested the three. Their families added that they could not trace their whereabouts even after visiting the Detective Branch office. No one demanded ransoms for their release either, they said. Nasir, a resident in Mirerbazar area of Gazipur, studies at a private university in Tongi, on the outskirts of Dhaka. Rasel’ father Forkan Gazi alleged that the police initially refused to accept the GD and asked him to go back. “When we went to the police station again on Tuesday to file a GD over my son’s abduction, they accepted it,” Forkan said. Rasel was employed by a cash-transportation service provider in Banani. Abdur Razzak, father of Hanif, an office assistant at a private organization, claimed his son was at their Beltola residence in Mohakhali Sunday night. He did not return home that night after he had gone out to meet Rasel in the Wireless Gate area. Al Amin, a security guard of Jamuna Bank there said he witnessed two unknown men picking Hanif up on a microbus and that he informed Hanif’s family of the matter as he was acquainted with his family. Meanwhile, RAB-2 issued a press release on Tuesday saying the four are active members of a fraud syndicate. They used to secretly photograph bKash registers by using Secret Video Recorders (SVRs) and cheat account holders of mobile banking system out of their money, it added. RAB officials said the syndicate also posts different false advertisements on the internet and Facebook for old products. When a customer reaches out to them to buy a product, they deceive him or her into sending money, and when the customer sends the money, they never send out the product to him or her. Members of the gang collect SIM cards from poor people and drug addicts at cheaper prices to execute their plans, they said, adding that they are trying to detain the remaining members.
