Mohammad Sohel Rana, owner of multi-storey Rana Plaza at Savar, is shifting goods and valuables from his residence at Savar Bazar road since he went into hiding on Wednesday.
Police have so far failed to arrest him despite orders from the Home Minister.
Rana escaped unhurt and was taken away by local Awami League MP Talukdar Mohammad Towhid Jung Murad from the basement of the building after Rana had gone there to visit the scene.
No-one was seen at Rana’s residence on Thursday evening. But several people who identified themselves as Rana’s staff were seen moving goods from the house.
Asked where those were being taken, one of them said, “We are not allowed to say that.”
They also said that they did not know about the whereabouts of Rana and his family members including his father, Abdul Khalek who was also accused in a case filed by police over the worst case of building collapse in Bangladesh’s history.
However, a local Juba League leader, asking not to be named, told bdnews24.com: “Rana is planning to flee the country.”
Rana is the Senior Joint Convenor of Savar unit of Juba League, ruling Awami League’s youth front.

The nine-storey building at the Savar Bus Stand caved in on Wednesday morning. The death toll from the collapse hit 261 on the wee hours of Friday while over 2,000 were rescued during the rescue efforts which began hours after the collapse.
Seven cases have been filed over the incident and Rana has been accused in each one of them.
