Order on accepting charge-sheet against Samrat Jan 10

A Dhaka court today set January 10, 2022, for passing order on accepting charge-sheet in a graft case against former Jubo League leader Ismail Hossain Chowdhury Samrat, reports BSS.

Today was fixed for passing the order, but Dhaka Metropolitan Session Judge KM Imrul Qayesh reset the date as police failed to produce the accused because of his illness. Samrat is now under treatment at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University under the supervision of prison authorities.

The court on September 22 had issued a production warrant and ordered the prison authorities to produce Ismail Hossain Chowdhury Samrat before it today in the case.

Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed the case against Samrat for amassing illegal wealth of Taka 2.94 crore. Investigation officer (IO) Jahangir Alam on November 26, 2020, filed the charge-sheet.

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on early October 6, 2019, arrested Samrat and his associate Arman from village Kunja Sreepur of Alkora union under Chauddagram upazila of Comilla district.
