The members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) will now investigate the two cases filed against expelled Dhaka South Juba League president Ismail Hossain Chowdhury Samrat under the Narcotics and Arms Act.

Detective Branch of Police handed over Samrat, and his associate Arman to RAB around 4pm on Thursday. 

RAB’s (legal and media wing) Senior Assistant Director Mizanur Rahman Bhuiyan said “Samrat and Arman are now in RAB-1 office. We will investigate the cases filed against them now." 

On October 6, RAB arrested Samrat, and his accomplice Arman, from the Chauddagram upazila of Comilla, over their alleged involvement in illicit casino operations.

RAB Executive Magistrate Sarowar Alam sentenced Samrat to six months in prison for keeping two kangaroo hides in his possession.

On the same day, he was sent to Keraniganj jail in Dhaka, while RAB filed the cases against him with Ramna police station under the Wildlife (preservation and security) Act.

On October 7, Md Mafuzul Haque, officer-in-charge (OC) of Ramna police station, also the investigation officer (IO) in the narcotics case, and OC (investigation) Jahirul Haque and IO of the arms case, appealed to a Dhaka court to remand Samrat for 10 days each in the two cases.

The court was unable to pass any order as the former Juba League leader fell ill.

On October 8, he was taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) after he complained of chest pain

Later, he was shifted to the Coronary Care Unit (CCU) of the National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD), from where he was discharged on October 12.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shorafuzzaman Ansari fixed October 15 for the remand hearing, which was initially scheduled for October 9, due to his illness.

On Tuesday, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Court remanded Samrat for 10 days in the two cases, and he was kept under Detective Branch's (DB) custody.
