State Minister for Civil Aviation and Tourism M Mahbub Ali and Fakirerpool Youngmen’s Club governing body chairman Rashed Khan Menon, and two others have been served with a legal notice for their involvement with or remarks in favour of casinos in the country.

The legal notice asked them to explain legal action should not be taken against them in this regard.

The two other respondents are Whip Shamsul Haque Chowdhury and Civil Aviation and Tourism Secretary Mohibul Haque.

They were asked to respond to the notice within 24 hours.

Supreme Court lawyer Eunus Ali Akond also served a notice on the home secretary seeking necessary measures against those involved in casino business across the country.

It was mentioned in the notice that although Menon was the chairman of Fakirerpool Youngmen’s Club where a casino used to be run, no action was taken against him.

Getting involved with a casino, Menon violated Article 18(2) of the Constitution, and the Public Gambling Act, 1867, it said, adding that action can be taken against him for sedition charge.

The notice also said Secretary Mohibul in the presence of Mahbub Ali revealed a decision to allow casinos in exclusive tourist zones for foreigners.

Besides, Whip Shamsul Haque was seen speaking in support of the casino.
