The RAB also arrested a woman pretending to be his wife
RAB has arrested a police sub-inspector (SI) and a woman pretending to be his wife on account of forcing children into prostitution.
The elite force members made the arrest on Saturday night from the Dariapara area of Sylhet. They also rescued two young girls aged 12 and 13.
The arrestees are- Rokon Uddin Bhuiyan (40) and Rima Begum (35). Rokon was a member of the Armed Police Battalion.
RAB-9 Additional Superintendent of Police (Media) Md Moniruzzaman said: “Acting on a tip-off, the RAB raided the flat Rokon was occupying. Realizing that we were there, Rokon and Rima tried to make a getaway.
“However, we succeeded in detaining them. We rescued two children, and 600 yaba pills from the spot.”
Preliminary interrogation revealed that Rokon and Rima lived in that flat and brought in young children stating that they needed housemaids. They would later force the children into prostitution.
RAB said the two arrestees were handed over to the Kotwali police station.
