Rab conducts drives at three Ctg clubs

UNB, Chattogram

Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) conducted raids on three sports clubs -- Abahani, Mohammedan and Muktijoddha -- in the city yesterday evening. Assistant Director (Media) ASP Mahmudul Hasan of RAB-7 said different teams of the elite force started the raids on the clubs around 7pm as part of their drive against gambling and drugs.

Various gambling instruments were seized from the Muktijoddha Club during the drive, he said. The drives at the three clubs ended around 10:30pm, the RAB official said, adding that details will

be disclosed at a press briefing today morning. On Friday night, Kotwali police conducted a drive at a club named -'Hangout' and arrested its owner and his son.

Law enforcers have started hunting down the dens of gambling and drugs across the country. The elite force of RAB detained 142 people from a casino at Fakirerpool Youngmen's Club in the capital on Wednesday.

Later, they arrested its president Khalid Mahmud Bhuiyan, also organising secretary of Dhaka South city unit of Juba League. He, however, expelled from the organisation.

RAB members arrested Golam Kibria Shamim alias GK Shamim along with illegal firearms and a huge amount of money from his Niketan office in the capital on Friday afternoon. RAB Executive Magistrate Mohammad Sarower Alam said they seized Tk 165 crore Fixed Deposit Receipt (FDR) and Tk 1.8 crore in cash and foreign currencies during the drive.

"A foreign-made pistol, seven shotguns and a huge cache of bullets were also seized from the office of GKB & Company Pvt Limited, owned by Shamim. The firearms were allegedly used in extortion and tender manipulation," he said.
