Police have requested a 10-day remand for Faria Mahbub Piyasha, an arrested model who has come under discussion at various times through various incidents.
The remand hearing will be held on Monday in the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shahidul Islam.
The information has been obtained from the sources of the general registration branch of the concerned court.
On the day, Model Piyasha was produced in the Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court. After that, Md. Alamgir Siddique, the investigation officer of the case, appealed for a three-day remand for Piyasha for the proper investigation of the case under the Narcotics Control Act with the Gulshan police station.
Earlier, the Cyber Crime Division of the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) arrested Piyasha from her residence in Baridhara around 10 pm on Sunday.
During this, 4 packets of yaba, 9 bottles of foreign liquor from the kitchen cabinets, raw materials for making Sisha from an ice cream box in the fridge and several e-cigarettes were found on the table at Piyasha’s house at the time. Besides, the detective police have seized 4 smartphones from Piyasha. At the end of the operation, Piyasha was picked up in a microbus by female members of the detective police and taken to the DB office.
It is known that Piyasha is the former wife of Apan Jewellers owner's son Shafat Ahmed. She first came up in news reports after Shafat was made accused of raping two female private university students at The Raintree hotel in 2017.
Her name came up recently following the death by suicide of a college student at a Gulshan residence.
Meanwhile, Harun-ur-Rashid, joint commissioner of DB (North Division) of DMP told reporters that Mou Akter was detained from her Mohammadpur residence during a separate drive tonight.
“The two models were members of a blackmailing ring. They arranged drugs for young girls and boys and would take compromising photos of them. And later, they would blackmail them with those photos.”
Cases will be filed against the duo under Narcotics Control Act, Harunur said, adding that they will also investigate the allegations of blackmailing.
