The Rapid Action Battalion has arrested Tarequz-zaman Rajib, the councillor of ward No. 33 under Dhaka North City Corporation, in a raid on a house in Dhaka's Bashundhara residential area as part of the crackdown on illegal casinos. The elite police unit, acting on a tip-off, surrounded the House No. 404 on Road No. 8 in the area on Saturday evening, a RAB spokesman said.

RAB Media Wing Assistant Director Mizanur Rahman later revealed the information on Rajib's arrest in the drive. Rajib had been in hiding and was arrested on specific charges, Mizanur said but did not reveal the allegations against the councillor.

"The drive is under way. Rajib is being quizzed," he said at 11:30pm.
Earlier, the RAB said in a text message said the drive on the house was part of the crackdown launched on illegal casinos in sporting clubs last month.
