Police filed multiple cases, investigation underway
A Dhaka court has placed models Faria Mahabub Piasha and Mou Akter on three-day remand each in separate narcotics cases filed with Gulshan and Mohammadpur police stations.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shahidul Islam and Mohammad Asheq Imam passed the orders on Monday after police produced them before the courts seeking a 10-day remand each for interrogation in the cases.
Earlier, the Detective Branch (DB) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) police on Sunday night arrested the two models on charges of blackmailing people with objectionable photos.
Piasha and Mou were held in two different raids conducted in the capital’s Baridhara and Mohammadpur areas respectively.
DMP Joint Commissioner (DB) Mohammad Harun-or-Rashid, while addressing the press, said that the two models used to invite rich people and their children to different parties at night.
They used to take objectionable photos of them which were later used for blackmailing, the DMP joint commissioner said adding that foreign liquor, yaba pills, and shisha (flavoured tobacco) were seized from the houses of the models.
Two separate cases have been filed with Gulshan and Mohammadpur police stations against the duo for the seized drugs and liquor.
However, Mou, while being taken into police custody, claimed to journalists that there were no drugs at her house. She said: “I am being framed.”

Piasha, former wife of Apan Jewellers owner's son Shafat Ahmed, first came to the discussion after the sensational The Raintree Dhaka hotel rape incident.
Shafat Ahmed was made accused of raping two female private university students at the Banani hotel in 2018.
Her name resurfaced recently after the suicide of college student Mosharat Jahan Munia – girlfriend of Bashundhara Group Managing Director (MD) Sayem Sobhan Anvir – in a Gulshan residence.
Sayem was sued on charges of abetting the suicide of Munia. However, the Bashundhara MD was relieved from the charges in a controversial final report submitted by the police.
Piasha was found to be a family friend of the owner of the flat where Munia committed suicide earlier in April.
She was interrogated by the police over the incident.
