A court on Thursday deferred the hearing on framing charges against Dhaka South Jubo League's expelled organising secretary Khaled Mahmud Bhuiyan alias Casino Khaled in a case filed under the Foreign Exchange Regulation Act and set January 17, 2021, as the next hearing date.
Judge Md Rabiul Alam of the Dhaka’s Third Additional Metropolitan Sessions Judge's Court on Thursday set the new date responding to the defence's plea.
Earlier, accused Khaled was produced before the court from jail. The court also rejected his bail plea.
On February 18, the CID filed a case against Khaled Mahmud Bhuiyan under the Foreign Exchange Control Act with the Gulshan police station in the capital.
RAB arrested Khalid from his Gulshan residence in a raid on September 18 last year for running casino operations at a club in Dhaka’s Fakirapool. During the raid, currencies of six countries were seized from his residence. These include 10,050 Singapore Dollars, 10,490 Thai Baht, 3,500 Indian rupees, 2,321 Saudi Riyal, 656 Malaysian Ringgit from and 75 United Arab Emirates Dirhams.
