RAB’s Media and Legal Wing Director Lieutenant Colonel AshiqueBikllah told BSS that the RAB filed the cases withTurag police station under Firearms and the Special Power Act.

The anti-crime elite force arrested Malek from Turag area early Sunday and recovered a foreign-made pistol, a magazine, five bullets, and counterfeit notes worth Tk 1.50 lakh from his possession.

The RAB official said being informed they started investigation against Malek, a Class-III employee of the DGHS, as he amazed huge wealth worth about Taka crores through illegal means.

The investigation found that Malek owns three multi-storey buildings in the capital, 24 flats, a dairy firm within 15-kathas of land and some other properties, worth over Taka100 crore.

“During the preliminary interrogation, Malek admitted his involvement in doing transfer business for earning money . . . He also said land properties in capital’s Hatirpool and Turag areas are from his ancestral assets,” Lt Colonel AshiqueBillah added.
