Selim was accused of amassing Tk12.27 crore illegally

A Dhaka court has placed online casino ‘kingpin’ Selim Prodhan on a seven-day fresh remand for amassing wealth illegally.

Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Qayesh issued the order after Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) deputy director Gulshan Anwar Prodhan, also the investigation officer (IO) of the case, produced him before the court praying for 10-day remand. 

The court set Wednesday to hold hearing on the plea.

On October 27, ACC filed the case against Selim for amassing illegal wealth amounting to Tk12.27 crore.

RAB arrested Selim from a Bangkok-bound flight at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport on September 30. 

They later raided Selim’s two offices in Gulshan and Banani and seized 48 bottles of foreign liquor, Tk29 lakh, foreign currency worth Tk77 lakh, 12 passports, one computer server, four laptops and two deer hides.
