Court Correspondent :
A Dhaka court yesterday fixed December 15 for submission of the probe report in the Narcotics case filed against expelled Jubo League Dhaka South unit President Ismail Hossain Samrat, an alleged kingpin of illegal casino business in the capital and his associate expelled Jubo League leader Enamul Haque Arman.
Metropolitan Magistrate Masud Ur Rahman of Dhaka CMM Court passed the order as the Investigation Officer could not submit the report on Thursday. Earlier, onn November 12, the ACC filed a graft case against Samrat for amassing wealth worth Tk 2, 94,80,087, beyond his known sources of income.
Samrat came under the spotlight after Rapid Action Battalion busted his illegal casino business at different sporting clubs in Dhaka. He was expelled from the Jubo League after his arrest.
On October 7, RAB members arrested Samrat and his close aide Enamul Haque Arman, former Vice-President of the same unit, from Cumilla raiding a house near Indian border. Later, Samrat
was quizzed in arms and narcotics cases.
Samrat hailed from an impoverished family of Feni's Parshuram. Studying up to eighth grade, he became involved in Bangladesh Chhatra League politics in 1990. During the BNP-led four-party rule from 1991 to 1996, he joined the Jubo League and was elected Organising Secretary of its Dhaka (South) City unit.
