The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has detained an owner of a travel agency on charges of assisting Rohingyas to acquire fake birth certificates and Bangladeshi passports.

The detainee is Atiqur Rahman, owner of Azizia Travel International.

“A team of RAB 2 conducted a drive in Dhaka's Basabo area on Monday afternoon and detained Atiqur along with some birth certificates and Bangladeshi passports,” said RAB 2 Company Commander Mohiuddin Faruque.

The drive was conducted based on the information of seven Rohingyas who were arrested on September 11, he added.
