Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) took into custody businessperson Helena Jahangir after the seizure of bottles of foreign liquor and deerskin among other stuff during a four-hour-long raid at her Gulshan residence on Friday night.

She was arrested around 12:15am on Saturday, and taken to the RAB Headquarters for interrogation.

"Walky-talkies, foreign currencies and casino equipment were seized during the search. We’ve arrested her over the seized elements and also based on some specific allegations against her," Rab Executive Magistrate Palash Kumar Basu said.

Helena is a director of the Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industries (FBCCI) and chairperson of Joyjatra TV.

On July 25, she lost membership of the Awami League subcommittee on women affairs for her involvement with Bangladesh Awami Chakrijibi League, an organization with no affiliation with the ruling party.
