Film actress Pori Moni and her associate Nazrul Islam Raj were the ringleaders of an organised crime gang, said Commander Khandaker Al Moin, director of Legal and Media Wing of Rab, on Thursday.
He came up with the remarks while briefing reporters about Pori Moni’s arrest at its headquarters in the afternoon.
They carried out their activities in different posh areas of the capital, including Gulshan, Baridhara and Banani, targeting people from the affluent section of society and had been selling drugs in the name of holding parties or DJ parties.
“Pori Moni had a minibar at her home and it was often used as a venue for such parties,” said Rab Commander Moin.
A case was filed against Dhallywood actress Pori Moni under the Narcotics Control Act on Thursday following her detention on Wednesday.
Two more cases -- one under the Narcotics Control Act and another under the Pornography Control Act—were filed against her associate Nazrul Islam Raj, owner of Raj Multimedia.
The elite force filed these cases with Banani Police Station, said the Rab official.
On Tuesday night, Rab arrested Sharful Hasan alias Mishu Hasan ,31, and his accomplice Md Masudul Islam alias Jishan, 39, along with firearms and huge stash of contraband items from Bashundhara Residential Area, he said.
