Bangladesh Bank has asked all concerned banks to freeze the bank accounts of controversial industrialist and film producer Aziz Mohammad Bhai.
The central bank wrote to all commercial banks on Monday, asking them to provide all information about his accounts and financial transactions by Tuesday (October 29).
On Sunday, law enforcers and an anti-narcotics team seized casino equipment and alcohol in a raid on Aziz Mohammad's home in the capital's Gulshan area.
The raid by the Department of Narcotics Control came amid the ongoing government crackdown on illegal casino businesses, corruption and other criminal activities.
During the raid, a mini bar was also found in his house. Sources say that many people used to go there to gamble and drink liquor.
The law-enforcers also detained Nabin Mandal, a caretaker, and Meer Md Parvez, a house-help of the house, for interrogation.
Aziz Mohammad Bhai is chairman of Olympic Industries and Ambee Pharmaceuticals.
