Members of the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) seized a haul of illegal wine raiding the Capital Recreation Club at Gulshan in the capital early on Saturday.

On information, a team of RAB-1 raided the club and found 400 bottles of contraband wine and 1,400 cans of beer, said Lt Col Abdullah Al Momen, commanding officer of RAB-1.

The authorities of the club ran the trade illegally. Affluent people used to visit the club regularly, the officer said.

The club had permission to keep wine and beer at its bar, but they kept the drugs at other places. Besides, they did not have permission to store so many bottles of liquor, he said.

None was arrested. A case will be filed against the club authorities, the officer added.
