Dhaka, Mar 24: Interpol has issued a red notice against Rabiul Islam Rabiul, the owner of Dubai’s Arav Jewellers and a fugitive suspect in the murder of a police officer, in line with Bangladesh’s request.
Arav Khan was shown as Rabiul Islam Rabiul, 35, in the wanted list on Interpol’s website on Friday.
Earlier, while talking to journalists in Chattogram, Inspector General of Police (IGP) Abdullah Al Mamun on March 20 said Interpol already accepted Bangladesh’s request on sending a red notice against Rabiul Islam Rabiul alias Arav Khan, the accused in the police murder case.
According to police, Arav’s real name is Rabiul Islam. On July 7 in 2018, police inspector Mamun Emran Khan was murdered in Dhaka.
On April 11, 2019, Detective Branch of police pressed charges against Rabiul and nine others in the murder case of Mamun Emran Khan, the then inspector of the special branch (SB) of police. Then, Rabiul Islam Rabiul went into hiding.
Now, he is a billionaire gold trader in Dubai, police added.
A Red Notice is a request to law enforcement worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender, or similar legal action, according to the Interpol’s website.
It is based on an arrest warrant or court order issued by the judicial authorities in the requesting country, it added.
Member countries apply their own laws in deciding whether to arrest a person.
