Huge cash, cheques from Selim’s house seized

DHAKA RAB today seized cash Taka 29 lakh, 12 passports, deer skins and cheques for Taka eight crore from city's Gulshan residence of Salim Prodhan, the mastermind of online casino business in the country.

RAB conducted a raid for the second time at Salim's house today, said RAB Legal and Media Wings Senior Assistant Director (Senior ASP) Mizanur Rahman Bhuiyan.

Earlier on Monday, a team of RAB-1 arrested Salim at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport over his involvement in the online gambling company called P24 and he was later taken to RAB-1 office for interrogation.

He used to collect money of the interested online-casino players, from particular gateways and deposit those cashes in three private bank accounts, RAB sources said.

The money was later smuggled abroad through Hundi process or individuals.

Salim had relationship with a businessman known as Gias-Uddin Al Mamun who gifted a BMW car to him and sent money to London in various ways, said Lieutenant Colonel Sarwar-Bin-Kashem, commanding officer of Rab-1.

RAB is now investigating into the matter, he added.
