Interpol has accepted 'Red Notice' request against Arav Khan: IGP

CHATTOGRAM, March 20, 2023 (BSS) - Inspector General of Police (IGP) Abdullah Al Mamun today said Interpol has already accepted Bangladesh's request on sending a red notice against Arav Khan, the accused in the police murder case.

"Bangladesh police have requested Interpol to issue a red notice against fugitive accused Rabiul Islam alias Arav Khan, owner of Dubai's Arav Jewellers . . . The Interpol has already accepted the request," he told journalists at Chattogram this afternoon.

While inaugurating Enayet Bazar Police Outpost of Kotwali Police Station under the Chittagong Metropolitan Police (CMP), the IGP categorically said, "A letter has been sent to Interpol to issue a red notice against the name which is mentioned in the charge sheet of a police murder case."

Replying to another query, Al Mamun said the relationship of a former senior police officer with Dubai based gold-trader Arav Khan is being investigated.

 "We are looking into the matter sincerely and you will get the information at the appropriate time," he added.

Responding to a question about actress Mahia Mahi, the police high mandarin, "She got bail . . . And I can say that no injustice will be done to anyone."

Asked about the terrorist activities in the Rohingya camp, the IGP said, "It is completely under our control. We are sincerely doing our duty. Police, district police, APBN, RAB, all detectives, and administration are working together."

He added: "We are taking actions against those who are trying to breach the law and order situation in every case. None are getting impunity."

Responding to another question related to the kidnapping in Cox's Bazar, Al Mamun said, "In every incident, the victim was rescued and the identified criminals are being brought to justice. Law enforcement agencies are taking action against them. So, there is nothing to be worried about here."

Arav Khan inaugurated Arav Jewellers in a grand ceremony last Wednesday in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Police instantly identified Arav Khan after he made several posts on Facebook inviting many Bangladeshi stars from the sports and entertainment arena.

According to police, Arav's real name is Rabiul Islam. On July 7, 2018, police inspector Mamun Emran Khan was murdered in Dhaka.

On April 11, 2019, Detective Branch of police pressed charges against Rabiul and nine others in the murder case of Mamun Emran Khan, the then inspector of the special branch (SB) of police. Then, Arav Khan went into hiding.

Rabiul Islam first went to India after fleeing from the country. Then, he collected a passport in the name of Arav Khan and went to Dubai. Now he is a billionaire gold trader in Dubai, police added.
