Govt bars import of casino equipment: NBR chief

Economic Reporter :
In supplementing the ongoing drives against casino and wrongdoers, the authority has stopped the import of casino equipment, National Board of Revenue (NBR) Chairman Md Mosharraf Hossain Bhuiyan said on Thursday.
Mosharraf said the NBR has taken actions against the import of casino materials as per the country’s constitution that has envisaged prohibition of the import of materials seemingly hurting the religious sentiment.
“Casino materials are not included in the list of import-prohibited products. But, our constitution has banned the import of such equipment. So, we asked the concerned officials to stop the import of casino materials,” he added.
