The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has filed two cases against Nusrat Shahrin Raka, sister of controversial expatriate journalist Kanak Sarwar, under the Digital Security and Narcotics Act.

The two cases were filed with Uttara West Police Station in the capital on Tuesday night.

ASP ANM Imran Khan, senior assistant director of RAB's legal and media wing, confirmed the matter on Wednesday morning.

Raka, 38, wife of Nasir Uddin Majumder, was arrested for spreading anti-state propaganda during a drive of Rab-1 conducted at the city’s Uttara area on early Tuesday.

RAB members seized a mobile phone set with anti-state contents, a passport, and some Ice or Crystal Meth from her possession during the arrest.

During primary interrogation of Rab, Raka confessed that she is an active member of a group that is involved in spreading anti-state propaganda, sources said.
