Police are preparing to apply for the remand of Monir Hossain, a gold trader, to question him in their custody after recording three cases against him over the possession of illicit assets, liquor and firearms.
Monir, popularly known as ‘Golden Monir’, became the talk of the town after his arrest on Saturday by the Rapid Action Battalion, which seized a huge amount of cash during an overnight raid on his home in Dhaka’s Merul Badda.
RAB seized a large cache of gold, liquor, Tk 19 million in cash and a pistol with a few rounds of ammunition during a raid on the home of Monir Hossain, a gold trader locally known as 'Golden Monir', Nov 21, 2020.

RAB subsequently started the cases under the narcotics, arms and Special Powers Acts after placing Monir into police custody on Sunday, according to Badda Police OC Parvez Islam.
"We will seek permission to remand him for seven in each case," he said.
The name ‘Golden Monir’ derives from “his jewellery business”, but Bangladesh Jewellers Samity or Bajus refuses to accept him as a member of their community.
The RAB also said Monir was not a jeweller. He had been involved in gold smuggling and later got into real estate business.
