Pallabi police will get four days each to interrogate her in two cases — one filed under the Telecommunication Act, another over fraud.
Meanwhile, Helena will be in the custody of Gulshan police for three days in a case filed under the Narcotics Control Act.
Besides, Gulshan police have been granted another three days to quiz her in a Digital Security Act case. She was initially put on remand for three days in the case on Friday.
Law enforcers arrested Helena Jahangir during a raid at her Gulshan residence in the capital on Thursday night.
During the raid, RAB seized a huge quantity of liquor, casino equipment, walkie-talkies and knives from Helena’s residence.
She is also facing charges in cases filed under the Wildlife Protection Act and the Special Powers Act.
