Fraudster Shahed arrested
Fraudster Shahed was changing his position from time to time. He was crossing the river by boat to India as planned. A special team of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrived at the spot. Sensing the presence of RAB members, the boatman swam away. But the cheater Shahed could not run or swim as he was fat.
RAB's Satkhira Company Commander (CPC-1) Bazlur Rashid said so.
After the arrest, it was seen that his dress was muddy in different parts of the body. The pistol was strapped to his waist. He even wore a black burqa over jeans and a blue shirt.
He was arrested around 5am on Wednesday while fleeing in a boat from Lobangapati area near Sakar Bazar of Debhata police station on the Satkhira border. He was later airlifted to Dhaka from Satkhira Stadium at 8 am. The helicopter carrying Shahid landed at the capital's Tejgaon old airport at 9 am.
