Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan on Thursday said the crackdown on unauthorised casinos in the city was carried out based on intelligence information and such drive will continue against all the illegal clubs and businesses.
The minister came up with the warning while talking to reporters at the Bangladesh Secretariat in the afternoon.
“We don’t issue licenses for casinos. Government approval is needed for running casinos. That’s why law enforcers conducted the drive in casinos yesterday,” he said.
On Wednesday, Members of Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) arrested Khalid Mahmud Bhuiyan, organising secretary of Dhaka South city unit of Jubo League and also president of Fakirerpool Youngmen’s Club, from Gulshan area for running an illegal casino.
