West Bengal police arrested a Bangladeshi national who traveled to Mekhliganj, West Bengal, to meet with former Banani Police Inspector (investigation) Sheikh Sohel Rana, who was arrested in India after fleeing the country .

According to police sources, the detainee is Mohammad Baharul.

Baharul arrived in India on September 9 and stayed in Siliguri for a few days, according to the Hindustan Times.

Last July, a fraud case was filed against E-orange at Gulshan Police Station for embezzling Tk 1,100 crore from a lakh customer. A person by the name of Taherul Islam filed a complaint on behalf of 29 aggrieved customers.

The company has been charged with bribery to the tune of Tk 1,100 crore.

Sonia and her husband Masukur Rahman are already in prison in the case and Sohel is also involved in the case.
