Rapid Action Battalion arrested Dhaka (South) Jubo League Organizing Secretary Khalid Mahmud Bhuiyan on Wednesday for running an unauthorized casino in Dhaka's Fakirapool Young Men's Club. 

He was subsequently put on a seven-day remand.

Omar Faroque claimed that the party would have taken action much earlier against its activists if they had information about their involvement in the casino business.

He said: "Every newspaper is now publishing reports about illegal casinos and they are trying to point fingers at us. If we had this information before, we could have taken action.

"Now law enforcement agencies are active. We will suspend all who are busted."

He said the organization does not need any "oversmart" activists.

"You need to be a manager to be involved in Jubo League party politics. What does a manager mean? It means  managing and adjusting. If you cannot manage, you will not be happy," he added.
