The owner of a class of black money is smuggling crores of money abroad through cryptocurrency bitcoin. At the same time, the owners of black money are laundering their illicit money by buying and selling Bitcoin. The Tejgaon division of the Dhaka Metropolitan Detective Police recently came to know about this after arresting a bitcoin trader.

Intelligence officials say illegal bitcoin trading has increased in the country. They have already identified several groups. Last Friday, the detective police arrested a member of the bitcoin gang named Mahmudur Rahman Jewel from the capital Dhaka.

In this regard, Deputy Commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Detective Police (Tejgaon Division) Golam Mostafa Russell said, Bitcoin is illegal in Bangladesh. But money is being smuggled out of the country through online bitcoin trading. We have identified several such groups. An operation is being carried out to arrest them.

Intelligence officials say a relative of the arrested Jewel lives in France. Through him, Jewel bought a bitcoin for 7,000 dollars. He recently sold the bitcoin for  21,000. However, recently the price of one bitcoin rose to 58 thousand dollars. At present it has come down again. During preliminary interrogation, Jewel admitted that he was involved in bitcoin trading during his stay in Malaysia. When he returned to the country in 2016, he was doing the same business.
