UNB

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of police arrested nine members of a fraudulent gang on charges of misappropriating huge amounts of money from an office in the capital's Nikunja on Tuesday night, reports UNB.

Members of the specialized police unit also seized 25 passports, including nine fake ones, as well as 10 fake visas and Tk 7.15 lakh in cash along with other illegal documents from the office.

The arrestees are-Shariful Islam Sajib, Gulam Mostafa, Mukhlesur Rahman, Asadul Hoque, Altaf Hossain alias Rajib, Asaduzzaman Babu alias Aziz, Abdul Quader Sarker alias Nurunnabi alias Ratan, Abuol Kalam Azad alias Hasan alias Bullet and Jahangir Alam.

Based on secret information, a CID team raided a neighbourhood in Nikunja and arrested the nine members of the organised gang at around 8:30 pm.

Briefing reporters at the CID headquarters in the city's Malibagh on Wednesday afternoon, its Special Super (SS) of Dhaka Metro (South) Enamul Kabir said the arrestees were involved in misappropriating money from unsuspecting people in the guise of a recruiting agency that would send them abroad, mostly to Kuwait, for jobs using false documents, including fake visas and medical test reports as well as manpower certificate.

The gang is known to have taken Tk 20 lakh from seven people in the name of sending them to Kuwait.

But they failed to send any of them. After examining the visas in the passports recovered in the raid, CID found them all to be fake, SS Enamul Kabir said.

A case was filed with Nilkhet Police station in connection with the incident.
