A businessman has been detained and a total of Tk1.25 crore seized from his house in Rasulpur area under Rupganj upazila of Narayanganj district. 

Acting on a tip-off, Detective Branch (DB) of Police raided the house in the early hours of Wednesday and detained three people.

The arrestees are Jamal Hossain Mridha, 40, his two associates Mostafa Kamal and Manik Mia. 

Narayanganj DB police Sub-Inspector (SI) Md Mizan said: “We had taken position outside the house last evening [Tuesday evening] after getting information that a consignment of 100,000 yaba pills was going to be delivered there.

Police detain the house owner Jamal Hossain from Rasulpur area under Rupganj upazila early Wednesday, October 2, 2019 Collected“We waited till midnight and raided Jamal’s house.” 

He said: “We recovered Tk1 crore from a trunk and additional Tk25 lakh was recovered from a cabinet in the house.”

Police also seized 2,000 yaba pills from his office, which is on the ground floor of the four-storey building.

SI Mizan said: “Jamal and Mostafa moved to Narayanganj from Barisal eight years ago and built the house.”

“They own three mosquito coil factories and also have cattle farms, from which they ran their drug business.”

Narayanganj Superintendent of Police (SP) Harun Or Rashid said: "Jamal failed to show the licenses for the factories. They were running the factories illegally.”

"Jamal could not even show the source of the money recovered from his house," he added.

The SP said: "We are assuming that the money was for hundi business, which they earned from drug business. Everything will be clear once we take him in remand for questioning.”

He also said three different cases --drug case, money laundering case, and a case under the Environmental Conservation Act will be filed against him.
