Interpol issues red notice against fugitive Arav Khan

UNB, Dhaka :

Interpol on Friday has finally issued a red notice against Arav Khan alias Rabiul Islam, a Dubai-based gold dealer and fugitive suspect in the murder of a Bangladeshi police officer, on its website in red notice list.

With this, the names of 63 Bangladeshis have so far been put in the list.   

The International Criminal Police Organization uploaded the details on fugitive Arav Khan by issuing the red notice three days after Inspector General of Police (IGP) Chowdhury Abdullah Al-Mamun at a programme in Chattogram told media that the Interpol accepted the request letter sent by the Bangladesh police to issue a red notice against him.

In the red list, Arav’s picture, gender, birthplace, birthdate, age, nationality and the allegations are available.

Though he went to the United Arab Emirates with an Indian passport, his nationality was mentioned in the list as a Bangladeshi.

On last Thursday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Seheli Sabrin told reporters in the weekly briefing that Arav has been under watch there.

She said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will extend required assistance if the Home Ministry seeks.

On March 16, a senior Detective Branch official said cricketer Shakib al Hasan and content creator Hero Alam who participated in the inauguration of Arav Jewellers in Dubai may be questioned for the sake of investigation.

On March 18, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan said that efforts were underway to bring Arav Khan to the country through the international police agency Interpol.

As the allegations of having a link between former IGP Benzir Ahmed and Arav Khan surfaced, the ex-police boss denied knowing the fugitive in a Facebook post on his verified account on May 19.

"I want to inform you all that I do not know anyone by the name of 'Aarav alias Rabiul alias Hridoy'. I do not even have a primary acquaintance with him," the former police chief wrote in his status.

On April 11, 2019, a chargesheet was submitted against Arav Khan and nine others in the murder case of former inspector of Special Branch of police Mamun Emran Khan.
