The Organised Crime unit of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has detained four foreign nationals in connection with swindling money by cheating people on Facebook.
The arrestees are Sisom, Moro Mohammad, Morison, and Anthony. All of them are citizens of Ghana and Nigeria, says a CID press release.
A specialised team of Organised Crime Unit, led by Additional Police Superintendent Rajib Farhan, detained them from Kaula and Basundhara areas of the capital.
Six laptops, several SIM cards, and six mobiles of different models were seized from their possession.
In primary interrogation, the arrestees confessed that they swindled several crores of taka from many people living in different parts of the country over the past few months.
They came to Bangladesh with tourist, sport, business and student visas. However, they could not show any legal documents and passports.
A victim named Khayrul filed a case against them with Kafrul Police Station.
