The NBR issued the order with the power of section 116 of ‘Income Tax Ordinance 1984’

National Board of Revenue (NBR) froze bank accounts of expelled  Jubo League Chairman Omar Faruk Chowdhury, four members of his family and two business firms.

The family members are Faruk’s wife Sheikh Sultana Rekha, three sons Abid Chowdhury, Muktadir Ahmed Chowdhury and  Ishtiaq Ahmed Chowdhury and two business firms -- Lakeview Properties Limited and Rao Construction.

The revenue board last week instructed all scheduled banks not to allow any withdrawal or transactions of money from these accounts.

The NBR issued the order with the power of section 116 of ‘Income Tax Ordinance 1984’, said a senior revenue board official.

Earlier on October 3, Financial Intelligence Unit (BFIU) asked all banks and financial institutions to send information related to the bank accounts of Omar Faruk Chowdhury and members of his family within three working days.

The BFIU and the Revenue Board recently froze several bank accounts and sought information about the accounts of more than a dozen Jubo League leaders and some influential persons over their alleged links to illegal casinos and gambling.

The banks have already frozen the accounts of Jubo League’s Dhaka South unit President Ismail Hossain Samrat, Jubo League leader SM Golam Kibria Shamim, his wife and mother, and expelled Jubo League leader Khaled Mahmud Bhuiyan.
