Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Wednesday warned that action will be taken if involvement of anyone from the administration and politicians is found in casino business no matter how influential they are.
The minister came up with the warning while briefing journalists over the current issues at the Secretariat.
Replying to a question over raids on casinos in different area of the city, the home boss said, "Drives are being conducted as those casinos are being run illegally. The drives began whenever the matter came under the administration's knowledge.
Sounding a note of warning, he also said that crackdown on such illegal clubs and casinos will continue.
Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested Khalid Mahmud Bhuiyan, organising secretary of Dhaka South city unit of Jubo League and also president of Fakirerpool Youngmen’s Club, from his Gulshan residence on wednesday for running an illegal casino.
