Findings contradict parts of the actress’s complaint, investigators say

Actress Pori Moni has been questioned by police over the case she filed against businessmen Nasir U Mahmood, Tuhin Siddiqui Omi and four others.

According to police, the actress, whose real name is Shamsunnahar Srity, was summoned to Savar model police station on Sunday for interrogation as part of their investigation into the case, reports The Business Standard.

On Monday, June 14, Pori Moni filed a case against Mahmood, Omi and the others for allegedly attempting to rape and murder her at a club.

In the case statement, Pori Moni said that she, costume designer Junayed Karim Jimmy, Omi and her cousin Bonny left for Uttara in two separate cars on the night of June 8. At one point, Omi said that he had to stop at the Dhaka Boat Club at Ashulia for a couple of minutes to run an errand.

They arrived at the club around 12:15am. Omi, seeing that the club was closed for the day, made a phone call after which the security personnel let them enter.

The actor said she and Bonny then left the car to use the restroom at the club.

“The moment Bonny got out of the car, Nasir [U Mahmood] asked us to enter the bar, take a seat, and have some coffee with him,” Pori Moni said in her written complaint.

The actor said she tried to turn him down, but Mahmood and Omi “forced her to drink liquor.”

As she refused the offer saying that she was feeling unwell, Mahmood forced a bottle into her mouth, injuring her lips and teeth, reads the case statement.

However, investigators on June 17 said some of their findings contradicted parts of Pori Moni’s complaint.

Security camera footage showed Pori Moni and her companions walking into the club normally as soon as the car stopped at the entrance of the club around 12:22am.

The actor was carried out into a waiting car around 1:59am, said officials familiar with the investigation.

Mahmood and Omi were arrested from Uttara soon after the case was filed by Pori Moni. Following the arrest, police pressed drug charges against the two over the recovery of liquor and yaba tablets during the raid. They have been remanded on the narcotics case, and later in the case filed by Pori Moni.

Three women were also arrested with the two men, and the women were remanded for three days in narcotics case as well.

Omi said during interrogation that they went to the club and drank with Nasir. Later, an argument broke out between Pori Moni and a staffer of the club over taking a bottle of liquor. Nasir and the others with him then intervened, according to the Bangla Tribune report.

Before going to the club, they all drank at Pori Moni's Banani house, Omi said before adding playwright Chayanika Chowdhury was also with them at the actor’s home.

Omi told investigators that Nasir had slapped Pori Moni a few times. However, Nasir denied assaulting the actor during the interrogation, the report said citing sources.
