Sameer Ahmed Omar Faraz, 45, took Tk 400,000 from each of the victims promising to send them to European countries such as Italy, the law enforcers said.

The National Security Intelligence (NSI), and the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) also arrested five Bangladeshis of a recruiting agency on charges of abetting Faraz, reports bdnews24.com.
