The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) will file a case against Jubo League leader Ismail Hossain Chowdhury Samrat, one of the casino kingpins in the capital, for amassing illegal wealth worth Tk 2.94 crore.

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) will file a case against Jubo League leader Ismail Hossain Chowdhury Samrat, one of the casino kingpins in the capital, for amassing illegal wealth worth Tk 2.94 crore.

ACC's Public Relations Officer (PRO) Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya confirmed it to The Daily Star today.

The commission has also learnt that Samrat amassed illegal wealth worth Tk 1,000 crore in abroad, the PRO said.

The ACC will file another case against Samrat's associate Enamul Haque Arman today for amassing Tk 2.05 crore-wealth illegally.

On October 6, Rapid Action Battalion members arrested Samrat, former president of Dhaka South Jubo League, and his close aide Arman, former vice-president of the same unit, in Cumilla after raiding a house near Indian border.

He came under the spotlight after Rab busted his illegal casino business at different sporting clubs in Dhaka. He was expelled from the Jubo League following his arrest.

Samrat was then brought to the capital, and the elite force conducted operations at various establishments where the Jubo League leader either lived or carried out political and business activities.

RAB also took Samrat to his political office in Kakrail where he had been reportedly staying since the crackdown began on September 18.

On September 24, the government imposed a travel ban on Samrat.

On October 13, Samrat’s mother Sayera Khatun Chowdhury said her son was implicated in the cases due to personal and political vengeance.
