Three 'human traffickers' held in capital
Rapid Action Battalion detained three suspected human traffickers and rescued seven victims from a hotel in the capital's Fakirapool last night.
The detainees were active members of a human trafficking syndicate, Yasin Arafat, an assistant superintendent of police of Rab-3, told The Daily Star.
The arrestees Abdul Kuddus Mridha, Jafar and Biplob are also staff of the hotel, said Yasin, adding that two other members Tanjil and Ismail of the syndicate are absconding.
The seven fortune seekers gathered there from different districts in the last 10 days after they had been promised jobs in Malaysia and Iraq, the Rab official said.
Rab also recovered two fake passports from the hotel, he said.
