“RAB conducted raids at three offices – Tutul Overseas, Limon Overseas and Loyal Overseas – after the guardians of some women, who were trafficked to the Middle East, complained to RAB,” he said. 

While working as a grocery shop owner, Tutul sometimes used to come to Dhaka. 

Lured by thoughts of earning more money quickly, he gradually got involved with a gang of traffickers and started recruiting people to send them abroad through various agencies.

Later, he opened agencies of his own and embezzled huge sums of money by promising to send many unemployed but educated people abroad from different parts of the country, the RAB official said. 

RAB also claimed that it had rescued four victims during the raid.

After recruiting the people for trafficking, the ring used to forge various documents, including fake medical tests, Abdullah Al Mamun said.

After completing all the procedures, the ring used to sell people abroad in Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Lebanon.
