Rabiul Islam alias Arav Khan, who is absconding in a case filed over murdering police inspector Mamun, is now under surveillance in United Arab Emirates (UAE).

"So far we know Arav Khan is still now under surveillance. We know that he has not been arrested," said the foreign ministry spokesperson Seheli Sabrin while answering newsmen at a weekly press briefing at the foreign ministry on Thursday.

When asked whether the home ministry sought any cooperation about Arav Khan, she replied in the negative.

Arav Khan had gone to Dubai with an Indian passport.

About the matter, Seheli said, "Indian passport is the issue of a separate ministry. That ministry will work whether he will be brought back by cancelling the Indian passport. We have embassies in Dubai and UAE and if we are asked for any information, we will cooperate with the home ministry or the concerned ministry with information."
