The arrestees are involved in duping some 150 people in the name of offering jobs
The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Bangladesh Police on Thursday arrested three persons for their alleged involvement in duping some 150 people in the name of offering jobs in the Hazrat Shahjalal (R) International Airport in Dhaka.
“Three persons were detained on charge of extracting money from the people in the name of giving jobs for the post of terminal supervisor and workers of the under-construction airport Terminal-3,” CID’s additional DIG Sheikh Omar Faruk said.
The CID official said the fraudsters swindled crores of Taka from 150 people by showing fake appointment letters of an organization called “Darpan Group”.
The detainees were identified as Chairman of Darpan Group Md Zahirul Islam Sohag, 52, managing director Hena Zahir, 50, and manager Mintol Roy alias Apurba Roy, 26.
They have taken Tk 50,000 to Tk 100,000 from each person to provide them jobs as terminal workers and supervisors, he added.
The CID said they admitted to their involvement during primary interrogation.
“The drive still continues to arrest the other members of the gang,” the additional DIG added.
