A friend of actor Pori Moni, Raz was held for possessing illegal items
Members of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested Dhalywood film producer and director Nazrul Islam Raz from his Banani house in the capital on Wednesday night in possession of drugs.
Raz was taken to the RAB Headquarters after the raid that started around 8:30pm, within hours after the arrest of his friend actor Pori Moni.
He is the head of “Raz Multimedia”, which produced Pori Moni’s first film “Bhalobasha Seemaheen”.
During the raid, RAB seized illegal items including drugs from his house, said Commander Al Moin, director of RAB’s legal and media wing.
He said that equipment used for engaging in perverted sex were also seized.
The raid was conducted based on information obtained during preliminary interrogation of Mishu, who was detained from actor Pori Moni’s residence.
RAB detained Pori Moni and took her into custody after the seizure of 30 bottles of foreign liquor and some blotting papers that are used to distribute LSD, a hallucinogenic drug.
