Police have recovered Rs 14.56 lakh in foreign currency and Indian currency besides jewellery and other valuables from them.The police arrested them on a tip-off that a Bangladeshi national along with family members was hiding in the city. “Rizwan Mohammad, originally from Bangladesh’s Khulna district, his wife Hina, father-in-law Khalid, daughter Rukhsar and his minor son (17) were arrested by the police on Sunday. Mohammad Adeeb, son of Rizwan Mohammad, is missing,” said joint police commissioner Anand Prakash Tiwari in a press conference held in the Police Line on Sunday.
