Detective police have arrested businessman Nasiruddin Mahmood and Omi in a case filed over rape and murder attempts on actor Shamsunnahar Smrity, popularly known as Pori Moni.
Harun Or Rashid, joint Commissioner of Detective Branch, confirmed it to The Media.
The detectives also detained three young women, members of a DJ group, along with contraband yaba tablets, foreign liquors and beer from Uttara area.
The detainees are being taken to DB office at Mintoo road in the capital.
“A fresh case under Narcotics Control Act will be filed after further investigation,” Mashiur Rahman, deputy commissioner of DB Gulshan division, told media.
Earlier in the day, Pori Moni filed a case against Nasiruddin, Omi and four others with the Savar Police Station over the incident.
Pori Moni, in a press conference on Sunday night, alleged that Nasiruddin had assaulted and threatened to murder her at Dhaka Boat Club on Wednesday night.
What is in the case statement?
The incident took place on 8 June midnight when Pori Moni along with her younger sister Boni, costume designer Omi and some other companions went to Dhaka Boat Club of Beri Badh area in the capital’s Savar.
Pori Moni alleged that she was heading towards Uttara from her Banani residence around 11:30pm, but Omi took her to the club tactfully.
At the midst of the way, Omi said that he needed to go to Dhaka Boat Club for a 2-minute task.
When they reached the club around 12:20am, it was found closed. However, Omi had a conversation with someone over phone and made arrangements to reopen the entrance of the club.
This time, he also tried to trick Pori Moni into entering the club in various ways.
