Sources said, she is in DB headquarters now. She will be freed if law enforcers won't find any suspicious thing. 
Eyewitnesses claimed, Emi was taking tea in front of Shamsunnahar  Hall at a tea stall with one of her friends. At that time, few civil dressed DB officials asked her to go near their microbus for talking with a high official of DB after exposing their identity.
