The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) detained actor Pori Moni after a raid on her Banani residence in the capital on Wednesday evening.
The elite force also claimed to have seized a huge quantity of foreign liquors, LSD drugs and ICE having pipes. The RAB team seized a huge amount of narcotics from her house as well.
"Pori Moni did not cooperate at the beginning of the raid. Later huge quantity of foreign liquor, LSD and ICE drugs were found in her house," said RAB's Additional Director General (Operations) Colonel KM Azad.
After conducting a drive for several hours at Pori's house, the RAB team took the actor to RAB headquarters for further interrogation at around 8 pm by a white-coloured microbus.
Meanwhile, based on Pori Moni's information RAB was conducting another drive at the residence of Nazrul Islam Raz, so-called film director and owner of Raz Multimedia, in the Banani area as of filing this report at 9:30 pm on Wednesday.
Pori Moni recently made the headlines after accusing a businessman of trying to rape and murder her at Dhaka Boat Club.
Police subsequently arrested Nasir Uddin Mahmood, a Dhaka Boat Club member, in a case filed by the Dhallywood actor.
Law enforcers, however, did not brief the media on what grounds the actor was detained. No case was filed either until the filing of this report.
Lt Col Khairul Islam, director of the intelligence wing of the RAB, told the media that they would brief them about the issue on Thursday.
Earlier, Commander Khandoker Al Moin, director of RAB's legal and media wing, told TBS that they conducted the drive following specific allegations against Pori Moni, but did not clarify what the allegations were.
Before opening the fingerprint-sensored door to the law enforcers during the raid in the afternoon, Pori came on Facebook live seeking help and claimed some unidentified people were trying to break into her residence.
Earlier on 15 June, she filed a case against businessman Nasiruddin Mahmood, Tuhin Siddiqui Omi and four others with the Savar police station under the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act and Penal Code 307 (Attempt to murder).
The detective branch of the Dhaka Metropolitan Police arrested Nasiruddin Mahmud and Tuhin Siddiqui Omi from the capital's Uttara area. Nasiruddin Mahmood was in jail for 15 days.
However, a Dhaka court granted bail to Nasiruddin and Tuhin Siddiqui Omi on 29 June.
The detective branch (DB) of police on 2 August detained two female models – Faria Mahabub Piasha and MouAkter – from the Baridhara and Mohammadpur areas of the capital on charge of blackmailing well-off people.
