The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has detained six impostors pretending to be RAB officers from the Kalma C&B road in Savar, on the outskirts of the capital.

Tipped off, a team of Rab-4 conducted a drive in the area and detained them along with two fake pistols, two sets of RAB uniforms, three fake ID cards, one motorbike and handcuffs around midnight on Saturday.
On March 26, a group numbering 7-8 identifying themselves as Rab personnel set up a checkpost and looted huge amounts of money from a number of businessmen, said a press release of Rab.
The ones caught on Saturday have been detained on charges of looting money after identifying themselves as members of the elite force, the release added.
