Television drama and film director Chayanika Chowdhury, who was picked up by DB police this evening, has been released tonight after a detailed interrogation over the Pori Moni case.
"Chayanika Chowdhury was taken to the DB office following various allegations made against her by some arrestees. She will be handed over to the custody of her family once the interrogation is over. However, she will be summoned again in the DB office for questioning whenever is needed," said Harun Ur Rashid, joint commissioner of DB police.
Harun Ur Rashid further said that Pori Moni's costume designer Jimmy, who was held hours after the detention of Chayanika, will be shown arrested.
DB police picked up Chayanika Chowdhury from the capital's Panthapath area this evening as her name came out while interrogating some recent arrestees including actor Pori Moni, who herself is now in police custody.
"Pori Moni revealed the name of a female director during her interrogation. After their face-to-face interrogation, DB will verify whether the director was Chayanika," said a DB official.
Chayanika Chowdhury directed a film called Bishwoshundori last year in which Pori Moni played the lead role.
RAB detained Pori Moni after a raid at her Banani residence in the capital on Wednesday night.
The elite force also claimed to have seized a huge quantity of foreign liquors, LSD drugs and ICE-consuming pipes from her house.
Later, based on Pori Moni's information, RAB conducted another raid at Raj Multimedia proprietor Nazrul Islam Raj's residence at Banani area on Wednesday night.
Pori Moni recently made the headlines after accusing businessman Nasir Uddin Mahmood of trying to rape and murder her at Dhaka Boat Club.
Police subsequently arrested Nasir, also a Dhaka Boat Club member, in a case filed by the Dhallywood actress who is now on bail.
