They detained seven people

A mobile court of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) conducted a raid at a Narayanganj factory on Thursday and seized fake electronics and cosmetics worth Tk90 crore, falsely labeled with popular brand names.

RAB also detained seven people including Belayet Hossain, the owner of the factory called Moonstar Marketing Private Ltd, located in Shimrai of Siddhirganj upazila in Narayanganj.

Using low quality chemicals and technology, the factory was producing body sprays and perfumes labeled with the brand names like Fogg, Axe Signature, Blue Lady etc, and electronics labeled Sony, Panasonic, and LG.

Confirming the matter, Palash Kumar Basu, executive magistrate of the RAB-9 mobile court, said the factory has been supplying their goods to the capital’s Chawkbazar and other markets across the country.

"The company had been cheating people with their products for a long time. The use of Methanol in fragrances requires licences from the Department of Narcotics Control and Department of Environment, but they failed to show these papers," Palash said.

Detained Belayet Hossain claimed he had all the papers but the mobile court refused to take a look at them.
