Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) have detained actress Pori Moni from her residence at Banani in the capital.
According to media reports, she was detained based on specific allegations against her.
Earlier, the actress went on Facebook live, stating that a group of people entered into her building and were knocking on the door of her flat.
But she did not open the door, said Pori Moni.
RAB members finally entered her flat around 4:30pm and requested her to switch off live streaming.
There were wide discussions about Pori Moni in recent times as she filed a case against five persons, including Nasir U Mahmud, former president of Uttara Club Limited, with Savar Police Station over attempted rape and murder at Dhaka Boat Club on June 9.
Two of the accused -- Nasir and Tuhin Siddiqui Omi -- were arrested along with three others from a residence at Uttara in the capital on June 14.
