Two brothers held with huge fortune

News Report: Detectives Monday arrested Gendaria thana Awami League vice-president Enamul Haque and his brother Rupon Bhuiyan from a house in Sobatta area of Keraniganj with huge fortune. The duo remained absconding since the lawenforcers raided their house at Gendaria in September last year and seized 8,072 grams of gold and Tk 5.5 crore in cash from their possession. The two brothers made a huge fortune through casino business and other illegal activities, tarnishing the image of the ruling party. Enamul and Rupon, joint general secretaries of Gendaria Thana AL, were hiding in the house of one of their employees in Sobatta area, said Imtiaz Ahmed, Deputy Inspector General (Organised crime) of Criminal Investigation Department (CID), at its headquarters in the city. The CID team seized 12 mobile phone sets and Tk 40 lakh from their possession, he said. Four money-laundering cases were filed against them, he added. Investigation showed that the siblings have 22 houses, mostly in old part of the city, 91 bank accounts where they have Tk 19 crore, and five cars, the DIG said.
