Samrat adopted various techniques to remain untraced, he added

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) Director General (DG) Benazir Ahmed said it took them more than the usual time to locate the actual whereabouts of Jubo League leader Ismail Chowdhury Samrat.

He said this while answering questions from journalists at the RAB headquarters on Sunday.

The RAB DG said, Samrat went into hiding within two days of the ongoing illegal casino raid across the country.

Benazir said: “Due to the media’s constant writing about Samrat, he adopted various techniques so that law enforcers could not trace him.”

However, the techniques used by Samrat were not disclosed.

He urged the media to be more careful from now on while writing about sensitive matters like this.

When asked about the actual accusation against the Jubo League South president, Benazir replied: “Samrat’s name came up while most of the casinos were raided, and based on that he was arrested.”

His accomplice Arman was also arrested for his alleged involvement in the casino business.

In the early hours of Sunday, Samrat and his accomplice Arman were arrested from Cumilla, over their alleged involvement in illicit casino operations.

He was arrested from Chauddagram upazila of the district around 5am on Sunday, RAB Director (Legal and Media Wing) Lt Colonel Sarwar Din Quasem told Dhaka Tribune.

Meanwhile, Samrat and Arman were expelled from Jubo League following his arrest for breaching party discipline, and unethical practices.

RAB officials raided Samrat's Kakrail office around 1:40pm on Sunday.

While replying to another question, the RAB DG said: “We first need to stop gambling, and illegal casinos, which we are doing at the moment. Now we must find who else are involved with it.”
