Banani Police Station Inspector (Investigation) Sheikh Sohel Rana, who was detained in India for trespassing, was suspended.
Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) commissioner Mohammad the information on Monday morning, saying that the action was taken as he was detained in India and was absent at work without permission.
Meanwhile, the DMP in an order transferred Inspector (investigation) of Uttara East Police Station Alamgir Gazi to Banani Police Station, replacing Sohel.
Earlier on Friday, India’s Border Security Force (BSF) detained Sohel from the Changrabandha border area in Cooch Behar district.
He is reportedly involved with e-commerce platform E-orange, which made headlines for reportedly embezzling crores of taka by not delivering customers’ products. His sister and brother-in-law used to run the company. Both are in jail now. Sohel left his workplace without permission after E-orange customers filed a case.
