Mohammedan Sporting Club Director Lokman Hossain Bhuiyan has confessed to the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) that he used to share casino earnings with a Jubo League leader in Dhaka.
The Jubo League leader is MA Sayeed, commissioner of Ward 9 of Dhaka South.
RAB sources confirmed the matter to The Business Standard this morning.
Sayeed is also the secretary of Bangladesh Hockey Federation.
A RAB-2 team detained Lokman from his Tejgaon's Monipuri Para residence last night.
RAB-2 Commanding Officer Ashik Billah said: "We got a tip-off that he was at home. A team arrested him afterwards for possession of five bottles of illegal foreign liquors."
Lokman does not have any licence to drink alcohol.
Earlier, Police found gambling equipment at Mohammedan Sporting Club on September 22 during a raid as part of the nationwide drive against illegal casinos and gambling.
Police said the illegal casino business and gambling activities had been running in the club for at least a decade.
