The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has arrested five members of an organised gang - involved in illegal kidney trade on social media.

Khandaker Al Moin, Rab's legal and media wing director, confirmed the information on Tuesday.

He said that the people were arrested during drives in Dhaka and Joypurhat. The arrestees include Shahrier Imran, an admin of a Facebook page used for kidney trade.

The group has long been duping low-income, poor people into selling their kidneys, the RAB official added.
