RAB seizes fake PPEs worth Tk1 crore after raids at Mitford area in Old Dhaka

A mobile court of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has sealed ten business establishments and fined Tk18 lakh for manufacturing and stockpiling huge amounts of fake personal protective equipment (PPEs).

A team of RAB-10 conducted a raid at Mitford area of old Dhaka on Saturday and seized Tk1 crore worth fake PPEs.

RAB Headquarters Executive Magistrate Akhtaruzzaman said some businessmen have been manufacturing and storing fake PPEs worth Tk1 crore at their warehouses in Armanitola and Mitford areas to take advantage of the coronavirus pandemic in the country.

RAB seized the huge amount of PPEs including hand gloves, sanitizers, and hand rubs from the warehouses, which are seriously harmful to health.
