Bangladesh Financial Intelligence Unit (BFIU) has sought bank account details of Bangladesh Awami Jubo League Chairman Mohammad Omar Faroque Chowdhury.
The move has been taken as the Jubo League leader is believed to have amassed huge tainted money.
On Wednesday, the BFIU in a letter to all scheduled banks in the country asked to submit the account details of Omar Faroque by the next seven days, a top official of a private commercial bank told Dhaka Tribune.
Earlier, the unit froze bank accounts of a number of Jubo League leaders and casino kingpins including GK Shamim and Khalid Mahmud Bhuiyan.
The BFIU is the central agency of the government that was established at Bangladesh Bank headquarters in 2002 to deal with money laundering crimes and terrorist financing issues.
