Rapid Action Battalion today claimed to have arrested three human traffickers in a drive at Khilgaon in Dhaka as they were planning to send some Rohingyas abroad illegally.

The arrestees--Umar Faruk, 30, M Taiab, 60, and Zafar Alam, 29, -- are active members of an organized human trafficking gang, Maj Md Jahangir Alam of Rab-3 who led the drive, told The Daily Star today.

Acting on a tip-off, a team of Rab-3 conducted a drive at a flat in Dakhkhin Goran area yesterday and arrested the three human traffickers, the Rab official said.
