‘Operation Sundarban’, a film produced by RAB Welfare Co-operative Society Limited, is set to hit the silver screen during the coming Eid-ul-Azha. Directed by ‘Dhaka Attack’ movie-famed director and producer Dipankar Dipon, the official website and teaser of the film were launched at a function on Tuesday at Army Golf Garden in the capital.

The film also highlights the technical and operational abilities of the RAB.
