Businessman Emile Sanowar has been denied bail and taken into custody following a “Secret Sunday” party held at Lady Chancellor Heights last Morning morning.
The businessman and his son, Emilio Sanowar, were both arrested and detained. A firearm and quantity of ammunition found on the compound were reported to be owned by the elder Sanowar. His son was released without charge but the elder Sanowar appeared before a Magistrate on Thursday to answer to the charges of gun and ammunition possession. During a background check, it was revealed that Sanowar had been held on a firearm-related offence in 2016 which was still pending. As such, his bail was denied.
Last Monday morning, Sanowar was among 20 men detained, and 22 women including a 14-year-old-girl, after police raided the “Secret Sunday” party. Reports indicate that the women were involved in lewd dancing and what appeared to be acts of prostitution. In addition to the firearm and ammunition found, drugs and over $20,000 in cash were also found on the compound.
