A Rohingya among three arrested at ShahjalalNew Age Online
The Armed Police Battalion on Friday arrested three out-bound passengers including a Rohinga national at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport while they were trying to fly out to Saudi Arabia with forged travel documents.
The battalion, specialized at airport security, arrested Ali, 35, of Sirajdikhan in Munshiganj and Akhter Hossain, 45, of Kanchpur in Narayanganj and the Rohingya Abul Kashem, 42, originally hailing from Magdo in Myanmar but who resides in Cox’s Bazar, at about 11:15am, while they stood in a queue to check in for the flight SV-801 at the departure lounge.
Ali and Akhter had managed ‘photo-changed’ passport to go through immigration.
After primary interrogation, the battalion senior assistant police superintendent said two mediators—Gulzar and Nazir--- had lured the arrested with job offers in Saudi Arabia in exchange of Tk 3.5 lakh each.
The police failed to arrest the middlemen but claimed they have started investigating the matter. The middlemen are apparently working at Fakirerpool in the capital.
A case has been filed against the arrested and the middlemen with the Dhaka airport police station.
