Nasima Akhter’s autopsy. Go for a walk to the girl’s house. So Jurain was waiting for the bus at the bus stand. Seeing him, a woman came forward. He made friends in various stories. Another of the two came and said that some local pilgrims were distributing zakat and cash (‘Hajir Kamla’ in their language). He got it too. Show the five thousand rupees in his hand. Seeing that, Nasima Akhter agreed to bring Kamla.

This time Nasima was informed that if Haji Sahib saw gold ornaments in her ears and hands, she would not agree to donate them. He opened the gold ornaments and asked them to keep them. Believe it or not, leave the gold ornaments and bags behind. Then two disguised people showed up at a house and fled from there. Later, Nasima went to the house and realized that she had been cheated.

Recently, the police have received information about several incidents of this fancy fraud called ‘Hajir Kamla’ in different areas of the capital. They say it’s a whole new kind of crime. There have been multiple cases of this fancy fraud. Police have been aware of the scam since June. The incidents of cheating are more common in Sadarghat, Gulistan and Jurain areas of the capital. Five members of the ring were arrested after reviewing several CCTV footages and cases over the months. Apart from 26 gold ornaments, 8 heavy silver and about Tk 6.5 lakh in cash, 26 mobile phones were also recovered.

Regarding the strategy of the fraudsters, Senior Assistant Commissioner (AC) Shah Alam said the gangs target one person first. Then he talked to her and gained faith.

After receiving a complaint from Corona, the police entered the field on the instructions of their superiors.

The police official said, “We have seen different types of fraud in the capital. But it is a brand new crime. They have not been seen in elite areas like Gulshan, Banani or Dhanmondi. Many low-income people travel by bus-launch through Sadarghat, Gulistan and Jurain. So the cycle has a position in these areas. Because, they can easily fool low income people.

According to Kadamtali police sources, the police had been working for some time to nab the gang (Hajir Kamla). The ringleaders were arrested in an operation led by Inspector (Investigation) Kamruzzaman on Friday. Many have been deceived by this fancy deception of theirs. The court granted them a two-day remand application for further questioning.

Shah Iftekhar Ahmed, deputy commissioner (DC) of the Wari division of the DMP, told the Dhaka Times, “The ring basically cheats in the bus, launch terminal area. Especially targets those who have one or those who have children. Or those who have gold ornaments on their necks. They changed their position by cheating. We have been spying for some time to catch this cycle. But they suddenly change homes. However, they were arrested yesterday (Friday). There may be more members in this cycle.

Asking not to be tempted by anyone, the police official said, ‘Many people fall into the trap of being tempted by a stranger. Later they were cheated. For this, do not give in to anyone’s temptation. ‘
