Police have been given four days to grill local Awami League leaders Enamul Haque Enu and his brother Rupon Bhuiyan in a money laundering case following their arrests over their alleged ties to the illegal casino business.

Their associate Sheikh Mostofa, who was arrested along with the brothers, has also been placed on a three-day remand.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Rajesh Choudhury passed the order on Tuesday.

The police's Criminal Investigation Department arrested the three of them with Tk 4 million from a nine-storey building in Keraniganj's Shubhada on Monday.

Enu, a shareholder of Dhaka Wanderers’ Club – one of the first establishments busted during the crackdown on casino operations, is the vice-president of Gendaria Thana Awami League. His brother Rupon was its joint general secretary.

They are accused of amassing over Tk 218 million through the casino business in a case started by the Anti-Corruption Commission.
