They were apprehended on Saturday morning

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has detained four members of a gang of currency counterfeiters and seized fake currencies of various countries from their possession at Dhaka airport.

They were apprehended at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport around 11:30am on Saturday when they were trying to flee to India, said RAB 1 Commanding Officer Shafi Ullah Bulbul, at a press conference at the battalion's Karwan Bazar media centre. 

The detained are Shamima Nur Papiya, 28, her husband Mofizur Rahman Chowdhury Sumon, 38, and their associates Sabikkhor Khandokar and Sheikh Tayeba.

The battalion recovered counterfeit currency of Tk25,600, US$11,091, 1,310 Indian rupees, and 420 Sri Lankan rupees from their possession, Shafi Ullah said.

He said Papiya was the ringleader of the gang and smuggled counterfeit notes. 

"She is also involved in illegal arms and drug trading, and a prostitution racket," he added.
