Monir allegedly deposited over Tk 791 crore in 129 bank accounts during his involvement with gold smuggling

A Dhaka court has directed the authorities concerned to freeze 170 bank accounts of four people, including Md Monir Hossain, known as Golden Monir, in connection with a money laundering case.

Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of the Dhaka Senior Special Judge’s Court issued the order upon accepting a petition of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the police on Tuesday.

CID Inspector Md Sadeque Ali, who is also the investigation officer of the case, submitted the petition seeking permission to freeze the bank accounts of the trio.

The other accused are Monir’s brother- in-law Md Haider Ali, Sirajganj Upazila Chairman Riaz Uddin and Dhaka North City Corporation Ward Councillor Shafiqul Islam.

Earlier, the CID on May 11 filed the case with Badda Police Station under the Money Laundering Prevention Act against 10 people, including Golden Monir.

According to the case, Monir owns around 30 plots, over a dozen buildings and two car showrooms, all of which were bought with his illegally earned money.

The CID also brought allegations against Monir to the effect that he deposited over Tk 791 crore in 129 bank accounts during his involvement with gold smuggling. Only Tk 6.18 crore is currently available in those bank accounts.

The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested Golden Monir on November 20 last year from his Merul Badda residence in the capital. A foreign-made pistol, bullets, foreign liquor, currencies of ten countries, eight kilograms of gold ornaments and Tk 1.9 crore in cash were recovered from his residence during the raid.
