They have launched a search operation to look into their properties
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has drawn up a list of names mentioning at least 20 people who have amassed illicit assets and wealth through the casino business.
The remarks were made by ACC Chairman Iqbal Mahmud while speaking to reporters at the ACC headquarters in Dhaka's Shegunbagicha area on Monday.
He said they have launched a search operation to look into their properties for possible connections with illegal casinos.
The ACC chairman added: "No one will get exemption if they are found guilty of being involved in this misconduct. All culprits will be brought to book."
On September 18, Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) uncovered illegal casino business during raids on the Fakirapool Young Men's Club, Wanderers Club, and Muktijoddha Krira Chakra revealing the involvement of Jubo League leaders in overseeing illicit gambling operations.
The elite police unit arrested Khalid Mahmud, organizing secretary of Jubo League's Dhaka south unit, the same day, before detaining Kalabagan Krira Chakra President and Krishak League leader Shafiqul Alam Firoz.
GK Shamim, Jubo League leader and businessman, was arrested two days later for money laundering, illegal possession of arms, and narcotics.
South Dhaka Jubo League leaders Ismail Hossain Chowdhury Samrat and Enamul Hoque Arman were jailed by a mobile court for six months each on Sunday, for wildlife law violations and drunkenness, respectively, several hours after their arrest from Comilla on Sunday.
Samrat, allegedly a top casino kingpin, was sentenced under the Bangladesh Wildlife Preservation Act after a RAB raid found hides of two kangaroos at his Kakrail office in Dhaka.
