The Criminal Investigation Department on Sunday has filed a case against expelled Jubo League leader Ismail Chowdhury Samrat and his associate Enamul Huq Arman for allegedly laundering Tk 1,950 million to Singapore.

Rashedur Rahman, sub-inspector of Financial Crime under the Organized Crime Division of the CID, lodged the case with Ramna Police Station in the capital.

Samrat, former president of Dhaka Metropolitan South Unit of Jubo League, earned huge amount of money by applying power at Motijheel, Fakirerpool, Paltan, and Kakrail areas, according to the case statement.

Of the earned money, Tk 1,950 million was laundered to Singapore with the help of Arman.

Samrat went to Singapore for 35 times, Malaysia for three times, Dubai for two times, and Hong Kong for one time from December 27, 2011, to August 9, 2019, while Arman visited Singapore for 23 times from December 12, 2011 to May 18, 2019.

On October 12 last year, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) also filed a case against him for earning wealth and properties through illegal means.
