Central Intelligence Cell (CIC) of National Board of Revenue (NBR) on Monday gave instruction to all banks to provide information on the accounts of SM Golam Kibria Shamim.

Central Intelligence Cell (CIC) of National Board of Revenue (NBR) on Monday gave instruction to all banks to provide information on the accounts of SM Golam Kibria Shamim.

NBR came up with the instruction a day after Bangladesh Financial Intelligence Unit (BFIU) froze the bank accounts of Shamim due to his alleged involvement in criminal activities.

The money-laundering prevention unit also asked banks to freeze the accounts of his wife and parents.

Shamim, who is now on a 10-day remand, was arrested on Friday for his alleged involvement in tender manipulation, extortion, and running drugs and gambling rackets.

After his arrest, some people submitted cheques to different banks to withdraw money from Shamim’s accounts.

Sensing the matter, landers sought suggestion from BFIU on whether they would accept cheques, according to a source at the central bank.

The intelligence cell has initially come to know that some “Tk 300 crore” is now deposited in Shamim’s accounts, the source said.

M Golam Kibria Shamim, who has been known to be an influential contractor of the PWD and other government organisations, was accused of tender manipulation, extortion, and running drugs and gambling rackets in one of the three cases filed against him on Saturday.

After his arrest, the court placed GK Shamim on a 10-day police remand.
