Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has detained FBCCI director Helena Jahangir at around 11:30 pm on Thursday.
Earlier, a team of RAB-2 launched a raid at Helena Jahangir’s duplex apartment on Road No. 36 in the Gulshan-2 area at around 8 pm. At that time, huge quantities of drugs were recovered from her home.
At the beginning of the operation, Khandaker Al Moin, commander of the RAB’s law and media branch, said the raid on Helena Jahangir’s house was “based on various allegations”.
According to the RAB, a large number of illegal items including drugs were recovered during the operation. Helena Jahangir will be questioned about where these drugs came from. For this, she will be taken to the RAB headquarters.
Helena Jahangir recently became the topic of discussion and criticism by posting a picture on Facebook announcing to make a leader. She announced that presidents and general secretaries “would be appointed’ in district, upazila and foreign branches under the banner of the organization.
