DHAKA, Jan 14, 2020 (BSS) – A Dhaka court here today placed Enamul Haque Enu and Rupon Bhuiyan on four-day remands each and their accomplice Sheikh Mostafa Sunny on three-day remand for quizzing over a money laundering case filed with Sutrapur police station.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Rajesh Chowdhury today issued the order responding to the appeal of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) as the CID produced them before the court by seeking 10-day remands for each, court official said this afternoon.
The CID in separate drives arrested three people, including two brothers – Enu and Rupon – and their cohort Sunny, from Keraniganj, outskirts of the capital yesterday morning for their alleged involvement in running casino business.
Enu is the director of Dhaka Wanderers Club and also vice-president of Gendaria Awami League (AL). His brother Rupon is also a shareholder of the Dhaka Wanderers Club and Joint General Secretary of Gendaria unit of AL, and Mostafa Sunny, one of their accomplices.
During the separate drives conducted by a team of Economic Squad of CID’s Organised Crime Unit, the law enforcers also recovered Taka 40 lakh and 12 mobile phone sets from their possession.
Police said they went into hiding soon after the current government started a massive haunt against the illegal casino business last year.
Earlier on September 25 in 2019, anti-crime elite force Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) raided the houses of Enu and Rupon in the capital’s old Dhaka and seized Tk 5 crore in cash, 720 tolas of gold ornaments and five firearms.
Seven cases were filed against them with Wari, Gendaria and Sutrapur police stations under the money laundering prevention, special power and firearms acts last year.
