Helena Jahangir, a businessperson turned politician, has given a confessional statement under section 164 in a case filed under Narcotics Control Act.

On the night of July 29, members of Rapid Action Battalion-1 (Rab) arrested Helena Jahangir, also chairman of ‘Joyjatra IPTV’, from her Gulshan residence, four days after she was removed from her post of a ruling party sub-committee.

The elite force members "seized foreign liquor, illegal walkie-talkie sets, casino equipment and deer skins" during a four-hour raid on her home.

Later another raid was conducted at Joyjatra IPTV station in Mirpur and it was sealed after recovering illegal equipement.

Later the court placed Helena on a 17-day remand in four cases.
