On 29 July, Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) detained Helena Jahangir from her Gulshan house and reportedly seized foreign liquors, illegal walkie-talkie sets, sharp weapons, foreign currencies, casino equipment and a deer hide.
Five separate cases were filed against her with Gulshan and Pallabi police stations under the Digital Security Act and the Special Powers Act, the Narcotics Control Act, the Wildlife (Conservation and Security) Act, the telecommunications act.
Later, a journalist filed another case on charges of fraudulence against Helena Jahangir.
Helena Jahangir was a member of the women affairs sub-committee of ruling Awami League. On 17 January, she was expelled from the post over her social media activities violating the party policy.
She was criticised for a Facebook post announcing recruitment of leaders for an organisation named 'Bangladesh Awami Chakrijibi League'.
