The gang used fake accounts on Facebook to lure victims

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on Saturday arrested five members of a kidnapping gang, which has been using fake accounts on Facebook to lure their victims in Sadar upazila of Pabna.

The arrested were identified as Monowar Islam Mamun, 31, Masud Rana Shaon, 27, Kazi Emdadul Hoque, 37, Rakib Hasan Rubel, 28, and Sujon Ali Prince. 

RAB confirmed the matter with a press release on Saturday signed by Pabna RAB 12 CPC 2 Camp Commander SM Jamil Ahmed. 

According to the release, a gang of kidnappers using a fake Facebook account, have been disguising themselves as attractive girls and seducing victim's into a relationship. Then, calling for a meet, they would kidnap them and demand a high ransom from their family members. This is how they made large sums of money.

Based on the complaints and information provided by such victims, the RAB team tracked down the gang members and arrested them. The elite team also recovered the phones and the fake accounts used to commit fraud. The accounts contained evidence of conversation with the victims, the release added.

Upon primary interrogation, the arrested confessed to their crimes and a case was filed with Pabna Sadar police station in this regard, said Camp Commander Jamil Ahmed.
