They were producing low quality and counterfeit cables which could be hazardous

A RAB mobile court has sealed six electric cable factories and jailed nine people for manufacturing poor quality products, and selling without BSTI permission on Wednesday evening in Old Dhaka's Nawabpur area.

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) Executive Magistrate Sarwoer Alam led the mobile court; the factories were also fined Tk40 lakh and one crore taka worth of cables were seized. 

Sarwoer Alam said the factories were manufacturing fake cables and they were using popular brands' logos in those fake cables. Such poor quality cables are illegal and are the cause of fire incidents.

The mobile court raided factories at Jakir Hossain Market of Abdul Hamid Lane in Nawabpur, and sealed off factories of HRB Products, TRB Products, New Star, Sowan LED House, and MSM Products, RAB officials said.

The court fined Tk2 lakh and sentenced three months of jail time to most of the accused. However, MSM Products in Hazi Osman Gani Road was fined Tk20 lakh. <strong/>Collected<strong/>
