Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on Tuesday has received the investigation of three cases against Shamima Nur Papiya — arms case and anti-narcotics case at Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Police Station and possessing fake currencies case at Airport Police Station.
“We will also appeal to the court for interrogation of the accused,” said Lt. Col. Shafiullah Bulbul, captain of RAB-1, confirming the matter and mentioned, “CID will investigate the money laundering case.”
On February 22, Papiya, her husband Mofizur Rahman alias Sumon Chowdhury (Moti Sumon) and their two accomplices were arrested in the RAB drives.
After the arrest, many allegations such as drugs and weapons smuggling, land occupation, ‘sex trade’ with women at Westin Hotel were coming to light against Papiya.
During the arrest from the Airport area, seven passports, Tk 2,12,270, fake currency of Tk 20,600, 310 Indian rupees, 420 Sri Lankan rupees and seven mobile phones were recovered from Papiya and her husband.
In the case of possessing fake currencies, a case was lodged with the Airport Police Station where Papiya, her husband and her two accomplices were charged.
On the other hand, two cases were lodged with Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Police Station over recovering foreign pistol, 20 rounds of bullets, five liquor bottles from Papiya’s ented presidential suite in Westin Hotel and two apartments in Indira Road in the capital. Papia and her husband were only charged in these two cases under the Arms Act and Anti-narcotics Act.
The court granted a total of 15 days remand in those three cases. During the interrogation of the accused in the Airport Police Station, the investigation was handed over to the DB police.
However, RAB was also keen to get the investigation involved in a hotel-house drive after their arrest. Due to this, RAB applied for permission from the Ministry of Home Affairs.
