The Customs Intelligence and Investigation Department (CIID) asked the owners of Apan Jewellers and Raintree Hotel to appear before it on Wednesday, UNB reports.
They have been asked to appear before it at the headquarters of CIID in the city’s Kakrail area by 11: 00 am with valid documents, said Dr Moinul Khan, CIID Director General (DG).
They will be interrogated over the jewelry and liquor seized on Sunday, he said.
Earlier on Sunday, CIID teams in separate drives seized 286 kilograms of gold and 61 grams of diamond without valid documents from Gulshan, Uttara, Mowchal and Shimanta Square branches of Apann Jewellers.
One of its outlets housed at Gulshan’s Suvastu Tower was sealed off while it was found locked during the raid.
Besides, another team of CIID seized 10 bottles of foreign liquor from a room of Raintree hotel on Sunday.
Recently, CIID decided to start an inquiry into the finances of Apan Jewellers’ owner Dildar Ahmed and his son Shafaat Ahmed after it had emerged that Shafaat and four of his associates allegedly raped two female university students at Banani’s Raintree hotel on March 28.
The victims lodged a case with Banani police on May 6 which is now being investigated by Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s Women Support and Investigation Centre.
Police have arrested accused Shafaat and Shadman Sakif from Syhlet. The other three accused are on the run..
