Dhaka, March 24: Absconding accused in the case of the murder of Special Branch (SB) Inspector Mamun Imran Khan, Rabiul Islam alias Apan alias Aarav Khan, is under the surveillance of members of the law enforcement agencies of Dubai, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Seheli Sabrin shared this information at the weekly briefing on Thursday afternoon.
She said, "As far as we know, Aarav Khan is still under surveillance. He was not arrested."
Saying that the Ministry of Home Affairs has not yet sought any cooperation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs regarding Arav Khan, Seheli Sabrin said that the Ministry of Home Affairs is working on Arav Khan. If the Ministry of Home Affairs seeks any assistance from us or the assistance of our Embassy in this regard, then we will definitely assist the Ministry of Home Affairs with information. But so far no help has been sought from us. The embassy is in contact with this matter and we will provide information if requested.
The spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that the issue of Indian passport is the matter of the concerned ministry. Therefore, the ministry will work on cancelling the Indian passport and bringing him back to the country or not. We have embassies in Dubai and the Emirates and if we are asked for information or anything, we can assist the Ministry of Interior or related ministries with information.
Earlier, Inspector General of Police (IGP) Chowdhury Abdullah Al-Mamun said, Bangladesh Police has written to Interpol to issue a red notice against Arav Khan alias Rabiul Islam alias Apan alias Hriday.
On the other hand, Police Headquarters AIG (Media & PR) Md. Manjur Rahman told Jago News that a letter has been sent to Interpol from Police Headquarters regarding Rabiul Islam alias Arav Khan. They also received our letter and returned mail. It takes three to four days to update the photo and information of a new criminal on the Interpol website. Hopefully, soon Aarav Khan's photo will be seen in Interpol's wanted person category.
