Syed Shemul Parvez :
About Tk 32 crore in cash was recovered from the houses of two brothers Enamul Haque Bhuiyan alias Enu and Rupon Bhuiyan, residents of old Dhaka and expelled AL leaders.
About Tk19 crore 11 lakh was found in their accounts with several private banks. Besides, there are 128 flats, said the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) sources.
CID Additional Superintendent of Police Nazim Uddin told the media that "Investigation into four money laundering cases filed against Enamul Haque and Rupon Bhuiyan, casino businessman in Old Dhaka, has been completed.
Chargesheets will be given in court at any time against them. Our investigation has revealed that around 128 flats have been found in different places including Old Dhaka with the name of two brothers Enamul and Rupon Bhuiyan.
Even Tk 19 crore of two brothers have been also found in the separate private banks. They built vast property through the illegal casino business.
CID will file another case against casino businessmen Enamul Haque and Rupon Bhuiyan, CID official Nazim Uddin further added.
Meanwhile, in October last year, the ACC filed two cases one against Enamul for amassing illegal wealth worth Tk 21.89 crore and another against Rupom for Tk 14.12 crore illegal wealth with its integrated district office-1 in Dhaka.
Earlier on January 13, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of police arrested Enamul, Rupon, and their associate Sheikh Sunny Mostafa in Keraniganj of Dhaka for their alleged link with casino businesses.
Enamul is the Director of Dhaka Wanderers Club and the sacked vice-president of the Awami League's Gandaria unit, while his brother Rupon, also a shareholder of the club, is the expelled  Joint General Secretary of the same unit.
In September last year, RAB filed seven cases against the brothers, a day after seizing huge amount of money and gold, alongside firearms, from their houses during a raid in Old Dhaka.
However, the CID has found that besides keeping such cash and property at home, Enamul Haque and Rupon Bhuiyan also deposited huge amount of money in the banks.
According to the CID investigation, Enamul and Rupon have at least Tk19 crore 11 lakh 36 thousand 394 deposited in the banks. These money has been now confiscated by a court order. They deposited these money in seven private banks. They opened such bank accounts at Bangshal, English Road, Nayabazar, Motijheel, Shantinagar, Gulshan, Dholaikhal and Nawabpur branches of the city.
