Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said no one would be allowed to run such business because the casino is not a legitimate business.

The minister addressed the chief guest at the World Car Free Day on Manikamiya Avenue on Sunday. He said this in response to a question from journalists.

The home minister said the casino is not a legal business in our country. No one will be allowed to run this kind of business, whether political leader, established person or public representative.

She said that under the direction of the Prime Minister, drives are being conducted against all extortion and illegal businesses. Meanwhile, some influential people involved in the business have been arrested. The operation will continue.
