NThe High Court has granted ad-interim bail to Ivan Shahriar Sohag, a National Film Award-winning choreographer who was arrested in 2020 in a case filed against him for trafficking girls to Dubai.

The HC bench of Justice Mamnoon Rahman and Justice Khizir Hayat granted the bail after hearing a petition filed by Evan Shahriar seeking bail in the case, media reports said on Sunday.

On September 12, 2020, CID arrested Sohag from Dhaka’s Niketon area over his involvement in sex trafficking.

CID officials said that they arrested the ringleader and two other members of a human trafficking ring that forced young women into prostitution in Dubai after trafficking them as tourists.

The ringleader was identified as Azam. During interrogation, Azam gave some information on his "cohorts.”

CID said that Ivan was part of the sex trafficking racket.

Azam trafficked in more than 1,000 women in the last eight years, luring them with promises of jobs with payment of up to Tk50,000 per month, the sources said.

CID filed a case with Lalbagh police station on July 2, with Azam Khan and others shown as arrested in the case.
