Police to increase surveillance in hotels

The detective branch will now investigate the cases of expelled Jubo Mohila League’s Narsingdi District unit general secretary Shamima Nur Papiya

Police will increase their surveillance across Dhaka's residential hotels in order to stop the unethical activities happening there.

Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Detective Branch (DB) Additional Commissioner Abdul Baten said this to reporters in a press briefing at DMP's Media Center on Thursday.

DMP additional commissioner said according to a law, residential hotels must submit the names and addresses of all their guests, local and foreign nationals, to the nearby police station.

As there are too many hotels, most of the time hotel management fails to provide the list and police find it difficult to supervise. However, from now on there will be regular supervision, he added. 

Abdul Baten said from now on police will be more vigilant on the unethical and criminal activities happening in hotels and ensure all rules are followed by the hotel management.

DB to investigate Papiya's cases

When asked about the recently expelled general secretary of Jubo Mohila League’s Narsingdi District unit Shamima Nur Papiya, the official said Rapid Action Battalion has filed three cases against her and she is in remand now.

The cases were handed over to the detective branch on Wednesday night.

The additional commissioner said: "We are investigating to find out who else were involved with Papiya's activities, who was the instigator, what was the source of her money and what was the source of power behind such despondence?"

"We are also investigating the types of activities which can take place in hotels,  what rules are followed by the management team, and the eligibility required to rent a hotel room," he added.

Moreover, if any victim has complaints against Papiya, those charges will also be investigated, the additional commissioner said.

On Saurday, February 22, Papiya, her husband Mofizur Rahman Sumon, and their associates Sabbir Khandaker and Sheikh Taiyaba Nur were detained by Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) with fake currencies of various countries in their possession from Dhaka's Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport.

In separate raids on February 23, the elite force also recovered one foreign-made pistol, two magazines, 20 bullets, five bottles of foreign liquor, five passports, three cheque books, some foreign currencies, and 10 bank cards from Papiya’s residences.

RAB officials raided two flats and her rented presidential suite at a five-star hotel in Dhaka and seized the items belonging to Papiya and her husband Mofizur Rahman.
