Members of the Customs Intelligence and Investigation Directorate (CIID) yesterday seized casino materials from two separate factories in Narayanganj and Munshiganj. Sources in the CIID said two customs intelligence teams, acting on a tip-off, raided a poultry firm and a battery manufacturing factory in the two districts. Additional Director General Mohammed Neyazur Rahman and Shamima Rahman led the teams respectively. Three pieces of mahjong, a sort of gambling machine, were recovered during the raid.
Of the seized items, two electric mahjong machines were seized from the New Hope Agroteck Bangladesh Limited in Munshiganj while the remaining mahjong machine was seized from the Dongging Longevity Industries Limited in Narayanganj.
The sources also said the concerned importers of the casino materials have already been summoned for interrogation.
Earlier on Sunday, the Customs Intelligence recovered casino machine ‘mahjong’ from a mobile phone factory named Best Tycoon (BD) Enterprise Limited situated at Rupganj in Narayanganj.
The CIID will take necessary legal measures after investigation, they added
