RAB seizes cash, gold from home of casino brothers Enu and Rupon
Tuesday 25th February 2020
The Rapid Action Battalion has seized a huge cache of cash and gold ornaments in a raid on another home of Enamul Haque Enu and his brother Rupon Bhuiyan - both leaders of the Awami League's Gandaria wing, who were arrested over their alleged ties to the illegal casino business.
The drive on the house in Old Dhaka's Lalmohon Street was led by the RAB's Executive Magistrate Sarwoer Alam in the early hours of Tuesday.
The elite police unit discovered about Tk 200-250 million in cash stashed away in five vaults along with fixed-deposit receipts or FDR savings worth Tk 50 million at the house, according to the ASP.
The RAB also confiscated numerous casino equipment bearing the seal of Wanderers Club, added Faizul.
Enu, a shareholder of Dhaka Wanderers' Club - one of the first establishments busted during the crackdown on casino operations on Sept 18 last year, was the vice-president of the ruling party's Gandaria Thana unit. His brother Rupon was its joint general secretary.
The absconding brothers were arrested from a building in Dhaka's Keraniganj on Jan 13 and implicated in seven cases. The CID is investigating four of these cases, involving charges of conducting illicit casino and gambling activities and money laundering.
