Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) detained actress Smrity Shamsunnahar Porimoni during a raid on her residence at Banani in the capital on Wednesday night.

The elite force also seized a huge quantity of narcotic drugs from the flat of the Dhallywood heroine. Two associates of the actress were also detained along with her. An RAB team started a raid on the house of the actress at about 4:00pm and detained her around 7:00pm.

Then, they along with her left the residence at about 8pm in a microbus for RAB Headquarters. The RAB team did not talk to the press formally when the actress was being taken to RAB headquarters.

RAB Additional Director General (Operations) Colonel KM Azad said huge alcohol, ice, LSD and those taking materials were seized from her flat.

The law enforcers faced a difficulty in bringing her from her flat as a big number of reporters of mass media and IP channels, and curious people flocked to the residence.

Journalists wanted to take a photo of Porimoni, but the elite force did not allow them, citing her security in the huge gatherings.  But reporters could be able to take her photos while she was picking into the microbus. The seized things were carried in another microbus.

Before Porimoni’s detention, the law enforcers raided her entire flat and found the drugs.

They grilled her in the presence of huge bottles of alcohol and other drugs and some other issues. The RAB said they primarily detained Porimoni who might be sued and arrested afterwards. The RAB team said they raided the flat as per specific intelligence information on having huge drugs.

At first, some members of the elite force gathered the residence and tried to enter her flat in the afternoon, but she did not open the door.

She then came on Facebook live and sought help from police and journalists, saying that some people were trying to enter her flat. Later on, she allowed the RAB personnel to enter her flat.

Porimoni has come to the fore after she raised a complaint that businessman Nasir U Mahmood and several others attempted to rape and kill her at Dhaka Boat Club at Birulia in Savar on June 9.

On June 14, she filed a case against them with Savar Model Police Station.

Nasir and five others were arrested in connection with the case.
