Samrat on 6-day remand in graft case

A Dhaka court on Sunday placed expelled Jubo League leader Ismail Chowdury Samrat on a six-day remand in a corruption case.

Earlier on November 12, the Anti-corruption Commission filed a case against Samrat, one of the casino kingpins in Dhaka, for amassing wealth worth Tk 2.94 crore through illegal means.

On October 6, Rapid Action Battalion members arrested Samrat from Cumilla after raiding a house near India's border.

He came under the spotlight after Rab busted his illegal casino business at different sporting clubs in Dhaka and later he was expelled from the Jubo League following his arrest.
