The revenue administrator's Central Intelligence Cell sent a letter - asking for the account details of Monir, his wife Rawshan Monir, mother Ayesha Begum and son Md Rafi Hossain - to all banks

The National Board of Revenue (NBR) on Monday sought the bank account details of gold trader Monir Hossain, also known as Golden Monir, and three of his family members.

The revenue administrator's Central Intelligence Cell sent a letter - asking for the account details of Monir, his wife Rawshan Monir, mother Ayesha Begum and son Md Rafi Hossain - to all banks.

The letter also instructed the banks to send all information regarding their accounts, loans, locker use, share trading, savings certificates, credit card and every other sort of transactions within the next seven days.

Monir was arrested late on Friday during an overnight raid at his residence in Dhaka’s Merul Badda.

A large cache of gold, gold ornaments, cash, liquor, a pistol and ammunition were seized in the raid, RAB told the media on Saturday. 

A huge amount of foreign currency, including US dollars and Saudi riyals, were also confiscated from the businessman’s home, said RAB Legal and Media Wing Director Lt Col Ashik Billah.

The 12-hour long raid, which ended at around 11am on Saturday, was carried out on the basis of specific intelligence, according to Billah.

In 2019, Rajuk filed a case against Monir for illicitly possessing documents of 70 Rajuk flats, RAB said, adding that the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) had also prosecuted him for acquiring wealth through graft.
