BNP’s mini-boss Tarique Rahman starts punishing ‘Nagorik TV’ foes


A Facebook page named ‘Nagorik TV’, which also runs a channel on YouTube is an extortion and blackmailing machine, which is directly run under command of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP)’s mini-boss and convicted fugitive Tarique Rahman.

According to credible source, sitting in the United Kingdom, Tarique Rahman has established a huge gang of extortionists, blackmailers, terrorists, criminals and terror-funders. Amongst them, there are several sacked military officers, who already are declared persona non grata in garrison areas in Bangladesh. Amongst these culprits, Zulkarnain Saer Sami alias Chhintaikari (snatcher) Sami has been made a covert team member of ‘Nagorik TV’. At the instructions of Tarique Rahman, Zulkarnain Saer Sami alias Chhintaikari Sami has been continuing defending and even abetting criminal activities of ‘Nagorik TV’.

Sami was arrested on July 21, 2006 as a criminal case was lodged against him with Kafrul Police Station in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The case number 43 was lodged under Section 140, 170, 171, 419, 435, 467, 469 and 472 of the Bangladesh Penal Code. In the case document, Zulkarnain Saer Khan Sami’s name is mentioned as Tanvir Md. Sadat Khan, son of Abdul Baset Khan of Ward number 3, Rahmatput Residential Area, Notun Bazar, Chandpur, Bangladesh and Dhaka address: Sukhon, Block A, Road 2, Plot 20, Banasree Residential Area, Khilgaon, Dhaka. Following arrest, Zulkarnain Saer Sami alias Tanvir Md. Sadat Khan admitted his crime of pretending as an officer of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) and cheating and blackmailing several individuals and business establishments. It is stated in the case document that prior to his arrest, Zulkarnain Saer Khan Sami alias Tanvir Md. Sadat Khan tried to skip arrest.

Despite the fact that father’s name of Zulkarnain Saer Khan Sami alias Tanvir Md. Sadat is Mohammed Abdul Baset Khan. But in his passports Sami has on-purpose changed his father’s name to “Colonel Wasit Khan” with the ulterior motive of dodging law enforcing agencies from getting hold of his criminal records.

On May 20, 2022, Zulkarnain Saer Khan Sami alias Tanvir Md. Sadat established a company named ‘SAMS INC LTD’ in the United Kingdom. Company number 13411356. Proposed registered office address of this company is: Kemp House, 160 City Road, London, United Kingdom EC1V 2NX. Main reason behind establishment of ‘SAMS INC LTD’ is to shift his illegal activities, such as drug trafficking, money-laundering and maintaining connections with various terrorist outfits from Hungary to the United Kingdom.

According to Bangladesh Army, Zulkarnain Saer Khan is an ex-cadet expelled from Bangladesh Military Academy on charges of drug addiction.

Recently at the instructions of Tarique Rahman, a leader of BNP named Jacob Milton in the US has lodged a theft and sexual harassment case against an anti-Bangladesh cyber terrorist named Elias Hossain and got him arrested by the New York Police Department (NYPD) on November 7, 2022. Although Elias Hossain has been running vile propaganda against Bangladesh and ruling Awami League for years as being a staunch supporter of Bangladesh Nationalist Party and Jamaat-e-Islami, he suddenly fell under the wrath of Tarique Rahman when he exposed an attempt of blackmailing and extortion of ‘Nagorik TV’ gang.
