Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has been given charge to investigate all the three cases against expelled Narsingdi Jubo Mohila League leader Shamima Noor Papia.

Confirming the matter, RAB Legal and Media Wing Director Lieutenant Colonel Sarwar- Bin- Kashem said on Tuesday: “We got a letter from the home ministry telling us to investigate Papia’s cases.”

“RAB is also planning to pray for remand before the court for further questioning,” added Sarwar.

Altogether three cases were filed against Papia. Two under the Arms Act and Narcotics Control Act at Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Police Station, and the third case was lodged at Airport Police Station for carrying counterfeit currency.

Later on February 26, the cases were handed over to Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s Detective Branch for investigation. 

Earlier, on February 22, RAB arrested Papia and her husband, along with their accomplices, at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport with counterfeit banknotes, foreign currencies, and cash.

RAB recovered seven passports, around Tk2.12 lakh in cash, Tk25,600 in fake currency, and a huge amount of fake currencies of different countries.

In a press conference, RAB revealed that Papia was the ringleader of a gang and smuggled counterfeit notes. It was also revealed that she was involved in illegal arms business and drug trading, and ran a prostitution racket.

The elite force also recovered one foreign-made pistol, two magazines, 20 bullets, 5 bottles of foreign liquor, 5 passports, 3 cheque books, some foreign currencies, and 10 bank cards from Papia’s residences.

After the arrest, Jubo Mohila League expelled Papia.
