Two policemen suspended for helping 15 Nepalese to flee

STAFF REPORTER, Dhaka
Two policemen suspended for helping 15 Nepalese to flee

Two policemen have been suspended for their alleged involvement in helping 15 Nepalese nationals to flee Fakirerpool Young Men’s Club during a drive against casinos on September 19. Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Shafiqul Islam confirmed about the suspension at a meeting with the Crime Reporters' Association Bangladesh (CRAB) yesterday.

The suspended policemen are Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Mithu of DMP and Constable Dipankar Chakma of Ramna Police Station, he said.

However, he did not say anything about another intelligence agency official against whom allegation has surfaced in connection with the same incident. The police commissioner said

that the action against the duo was taken after getting evidence from CCTV footage.   Asked whether police personnel are involved in the casino business, the commissioner said the matter is under investigation and actions also would be taken if their involvement is found.   CCTV footage surfaced that shows three people claiming to be police officers entering an apartment building in Segun Bagicha, Dhaka, just before 15 Nepali nationals hurriedly left there, shortly before the first raids on illegal casinos in the capital on September 18.

At the entrance, they introduced themselves as policemen and told the security guard to take them where the Nepalis were staying. The guard, Uzzal, took them to the flat. Uzzal was not allowed inside. The three left the building around 11:28pm with a bag. Around 1:46am, 15 Nepalis were seen leaving the building with luggage.

The investigation by RAB revealed that more than a hundred Nepalese nationals were involved in the operation of illegal casinos in the capital, either as owners of shares in the business, or as experienced operators of gambling machines.

All of the foreign nationals have managed to escape arrest so far.
