Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on Tuesday claimed to have busted a gang of cyber frauds with the arrest of its five members in Dhaka.

The arrestees have been identified as Md Golam Mostafa, 60, the gang leader, Md Jalal Bashar, 54, Md Muslim Uddin, 40, Md Minarul Islam Minni, 22, and Md Tareq Mridha, 21.

Acting on a tip-off, a team of RAB-3 conducted a drive in Dhaka's Malibagh, Basabo, Shahjahanpur and Kotwali police station areas and arrested them on Monday.

During the drive, the elite force also seized two computers, 2,460 fake receipts of the Bangladesh Road Transport Authority, 26 fake national identity cards, one laptop, one digital camera, 16 fake driving licenses, one card printer, four pen drives, five cell phones and TK2,600 in cash from their possession.

The accused would lure potential targets on Facebook with the offer of getting them driving licenses and national identity cards in a short time, the force said in a press release.

Legal action will be taken against them, officials said.
