Two airlines involved in human trafficking: CID
The CID has received information that the employees of two airlines were involved in human trafficking from Bangladesh to different countries.
Additional Inspector General Mahbubur Rahman made the remarks at a press conference on Tuesday.
The press conference was held to provide details about the issuance of a red alert through Interpol seeking the search for six fugitives in a human trafficking case in Libya.
In the press meet, Mahbubur Rahman said, "Investigations into human trafficking have revealed the involvement of employees of two airlines."
Without disclosing the names of the two airlines, he said, “These two airlines are not companies in Bangladesh. The investigation shows that both the airlines have sent people on single tickets, which is unfair. Any one should never go on a single ticket if the trip is for seminars, treatment or tour. The matter has also come up in the own investigation of the authorities of those two airlines.”
Asked if there was any liability of the immigration in this regard, Mahbubur Rahman said, “Immigration officials are shown two tickets for coming and going. But actually the return ticket was not correct. The people of that airlines also know this.”
