On September 27, Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) had filed seven cases against Awami League leaders Enamul Haque Enu and his brother Rupon Bhuiyan

A Dhaka court on Thursday placed Enamul Haque Enu, sacked vice-president of Gandaria Thana unit of Awami League, on a four-day remand for interrogation in a case filed over amassing illegal wealth.

Judge KM Imrul Kayes of the Dhaka Senior Special Judge’s Court passed the order after after Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Assistant Director Md Mamunur Rashid Chowdhury, also investigation officer (IO) of the case, produced him before the court seeking a seven-day remand after the completion of his four-day remand.

Opposing the remand petition, defence counsel Saidur Rahman Manik submitted a bail petition seeking bail for his client but the court rejected the plea after hearing.

On September 27, Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) had filed seven cases against Awami League leaders Enamul Haque Enu and his brother Rupon Bhuiyan, a day after seizing huge amount of money and gold alongside firearms from their houses during a raid in Old Dhaka.

CID officials arrested Enamul, his brother Rupon and their associate Sunny from Dhaka's Keraniganj on January 13.

Enamul Haque Enu is the director of Dhaka Wanderers Club and the sacked vice-president of the Awami League's Gandaria unit, while his brother Rupom Bhuiyan is the joint general secretary for the same area.

At least four cases had been filed against the brothers for their alleged ties to illegal casino business, money laundering and corruption.
