The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has seized a huge cache of cash and jewellery in a raid on another home of Awami League leaders Enamul Haque Enu and his brother Rupon Bhuiyan, 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.
"No one lives on the first floor of the five-storey building. Everything there seemed to have been left in a secured state. We found out about the house while looking into the two dozen homes of Enu and Rupon," said RAB-3's Additional Superintendent of Police ABM Faizul Islam, reports bdnews24.com.
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.
"We are counting the banknotes found in the chests. It initially seems that the amount ranges between Tk 200 million and Tk 250 million. We've brought cash-counting machines to determine the quantity."
The RAB also confiscated numerous casino equipment bearing the seal of Wanderers Club, added Faizul.
