Three hotels are located in Dhaka - Surma International on the Taj Mahal road, Hotel Mohammadia in Mirpur and Padma International in Banani, BSF Inspector-General of Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur and Nagaland S C Srivastava said at a news conference in Shillong.

The hotels are managed by Subal Barua alias Ahmed, Satish Sharma alias Kamal and Ashish Deka alias Hossain, he said.
