Former organizing secretary of Awami Jubo League’s (Dhaka South) unit Khalid Mahmud Bhuiyan has been placed in a total of seven-day remand again in two separate cases over money laundering and narcotics.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shadbir Yasir Ahsan Chowdhury passed the order of a four-day remand in a money laundering case filed with Gulshan police station, and Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Kanak Barua passed the order of a three-day remand in a narcotics case filed with Motijheel police station, on Monday.

Earlier on September 19, Khalid was placed on a seven-day remand, followed by an order of a 10-day remand on September 27 in the two cases.

RAB arrested Khalid from his Gulshan residence on September 18, for allegedly running an illegal casino in the Dhaka’s Fakirapool area. The law enforcement agency also seized illegal weapons, yaba pills, and a huge amount of cash from his residence.

He was then handed over to Gulshan police station on September 19.

RAB filed three cases against him under Arms, Narcotics Control Act, and Money Laundering Prevention Act.

Jubo League expelled Khalid for his alleged involvement in anti-social activities.
