Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on Tuesday conducted a raid at a house at Lalmatia in Mohammadpur of the capital and arrested a man for running illegal Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) operations.

The arrestee is Shafikul Islam, who is the caretaker of the house and involved in the illegal task. 
The force men conducted the drive at the house No. F5 and block No. E on Jakir Hossain Road in the afternoon and ended around 8:00pm. They seized huge SIM cards and VoIP running materials from the residence.

After the raid, Commander Khandaker Al Moin, director (Legal and Media Wing) of the force, told journalists that a Bangladeshi, who is now at the Middle East, was the ringleader of the illegal operations.
Three workers appointed by the expatriate have been running the operations for the last one and a half years, he said, adding that they deprived the government of about Tk 70-80 million.
