Entertainment Live: Detective police have arrested businessman Nasiruddin Mahmood and Omi in a case filed over rape and murder attempts on actor Shamsunnahar Smrity, popularly known as Pori Moni. Harun Or Rashid, Joint Commissioner of Detective Branch, confirmed it to The Campuslive24.com.
The detectives also detained three young women, members of a DJ group, along with contraband yaba tablets, foreign liquors, and beer from the Uttara area. The detainees are being taken to the DB office at Mintoo road in the capital.
Earlier in the day, Pori Moni filed a case against Nasiruddin, Omi, and four others with the Savar Police Station over the incident. She filed the case under Women and Children Repression Prevention Act and Penal Code 307.
Pori Moni, in a press conference on Sunday night, alleged that Nasiruddin had assaulted and threatened to murder her at Dhaka Boat Club on Wednesday night.
What is in the case statement?
The incident took place on 8 June midnight when Pori Moni along with her younger sister Boni, costume designer Omi and some other companions went to Dhaka Boat Club of Beri Badh area in the capital's Savar.
Pori Moni alleged that she was heading towards Uttara from her Banani residence around 11:30 pm, but Omi took her to the club tactfully.
In the midst of the way, Omi said that he needed to go to Dhaka Boat Club for a 2-minute task. When they reached the club around 12:20 am, it was found closed. However, Omi had a conversation with someone over the phone and made arrangements to reopen the entrance of the club.
This time, he also tried to trick Pori Moni into entering the club in various ways.
At one stage, they entered the club and Boni went to the loo beside the club bar. As soon as they left the toilet, Nasiruddin Mahmud, former president of Uttara Club, appeared there, requested them to sit inside the bar for a while, and offered liquor and coffee.
As they refused, Nasiruddin turned violent and forced Pori Moni to drink liquor. He also touched her indecently. Other companions, including costume designer Jimmy, came forward but failed to save Pori Moni from the assault.
At one stage, she tried repeatedly to call the national emergency service at 999 but Nasiruddin snatched her phone. Pori Moni alleged some four people, including her costume designer Omi, abetted the assault by Nasiruddin.
Later, she somehow managed to get out of the club around 3 am and returned home with help of other companions. Pori Moni also alleged that the accused are now intimidating and threatening her in various ways.
