A mobile court of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on Monday sentenced Irfan Salim, son of lawmaker Haji Md Salim, for one year under the Narcotic Control Act and six months for possessing illegal walkie-talkies.

Irfan's bodyguard Zahidul Islam was jailed for six months for possessing illegal walkie-talkies.

RAB members along with executive magistrate Sarwar Alam raided the nine-storey building of Haji Salim at around noon, reports UNB.


Briefing reporters in the evening, Lt Col Ashique Billah yesterday said two separate cases will be filed at the local police station -- one under the Arms Act and another under Narcotics Control Act -- against the duo, he said.

Two firearms, 38 walkie-talkies and foreign liquor were recovered from the house during the drive, he added.

A RAB official said Irfan has been living on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the building. A pair of handcuffs was also recovered during the raid.
