The revelation came when the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on Sunday rescued the Rohingya women from the clutch of the human traffickers
Some days ago 13 Rohingya women on the sly came out of refugee camps in Cox's Bazar and separately took a journey towards Dhaka to leave for Malaysia in search of a better life.
Prior to making their way to the capital, the Rohingyas got in touch with a human trafficking racket who helped them acquire passports by fraudulence means.
They safely reached the city and got to stay at a flat in Banasree.
Promising them good jobs abroad, the gang did all necessary arrangements to send them to Kolkata through the Benapole land port before they catch a flight to Malaysia.
The revelation came when the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on Sunday rescued the Rohingya women from the clutch of the human traffickers.
On a tip-off, they raided the flat in Banasree and detained three persons, including Kabir Hossain, a travel agency official, said Lieutenant Colonel Rokibul Hasan, the commanding officer of RAB-3.
"Kabir took the flat on rent and completed all procedures for the Rohingya women to leave the country with fake passports and documents," he added.
During a primary interrogation, the detainees admitted that they bribed passport officials for issuing fake passports in the name of the Rohingyas, said Faijul Islam, the deputy director of RAB-3.
