The elite police unit also seized a huge cache of fixed-deposit receipt or FDR savings, gold ornaments, foreign currencies and casino equipment bearing the seal of Wanderers Club, according to RAB officials.
Later, RAB-3 Captain Rafiqul Hassan revealed that the law-enforcement force found Tk 260.55 million in cash and FDR worth about Tk 50.15 million from the residence on the ground floor of the five-storey building.
They also recovered $9,300, 156 Malaysian ringgit, 5,350 Indian rupees, 1,195 Chinese yen, 11,560 Thai baht and 11,560 UAE dirham along with about 1kg of gold.
The house in a narrow alley of Lalmohan Saha Street was unoccupied when the law enforcers arrived but everything inside was kept secure, according to RAB-3's Assistant Superintendent of Police ABM Faizul Islam.
We found out about the house while looking into the two dozen homes of Enu and Rupon. But we didn't make any new arrests there," said RAB-3's Additional Superintendent of Police ABM Faizul Islam.
The law enforcement subsequently recovered about Tk 50 million, 8kg of gold and six firearms in raids on the residences of the brothers and two others in Dhaka’s Gandaria.
The absconding brothers were arrested from a building in Dhaka's Keraniganj on Jan 13 and implicated in seven cases. The CID is investigating four of these cases, involving charges of conducting illicit casino and gambling activities and money laundering.
