Briefing reporters at DMP media centre on Monday, Additional Commissioner (DB) of the DMP Mo-hammad Haroon Or-Rashid disclosed it. DB Lalbagh Division DC (promoted to the post of Additional DIG) Moshiur Rahman was also present.
During the briefing, the DB chief said that the syndicate members used to make birth certificates, NID cards and passports for Rohingya children, women and men in exchange of thousands of taka. The cycle has been doing this in three parts. A group of them brought Rohingyas from Cox’s Bazar, Bandarban, Khagrachari to Dhaka. Another group makes birth certificate, NID cards for them. Finally, the other group arranges for money deposit, biometrics and photo taking through Ansar members in various re-gional passport offices including Dhaka.
He said, they usually charge Tk 5,000 to 12,000 for the birth certificate within six hours. Primarily they admitted that they used to charge 25 thousand taka to get NID within three days and 1 lakh 20 thousand taka to make passport.
The relevant soft documents, delivery slips of hundreds of passports were found in the mobile phones of the arrested brokers. Out of which 143 passports were made for Rohingyas in the last three months. The gang members also admitted to issuing passports to Rohingyas, Bangladeshi criminals under different names and addresses since 2019.
The top officer of the DMP’s DB said that the arrested people used the use addresses of Dhaka, Rajshahi, Narayanganj, Mymensingh, Rangpur, Shariatpur, Gopalganj and Barisal districts to create birth certifi-cates and NIDs and then make passports based on those documents.
Bangladesh has Rohingya database , digital birth certificate datas and smart NID data bank where various information including biometrics, images are stored. However, without any verification of this infor-mation, anyone can submit biometrics to deposit money through brokers and take photos for passports at the passport office on the basis of required documents. But it is possible to identify Bangladeshi nation-als and Rohingyas immediately by scrutinising Rohingya data, digital birth certificate data and smart NID data before making passports.
