Arms Haul Case

CID seeks remand for Babar, Rahim

Criminal Investigation Department (CID) here yesterday submitted petitions seeking 10-day remand each against former state minister Lutfozzaman Babar and former director general of National Security Intelligence (NSI) Brigadier General (retd) Abdur Rahim in the sensational Chittagong arms haul case.
Investigation officer (IO) and Senior ASP Mohammad Moniruzzaman of CID filed a petition with the court of Chief Metropolitan Magistrate seeking 10-day remand against Abdur Rahim in the arms smuggling case filed on April 3 with Karnaphuli police station under section-25/B of the Special Powers Act for arms smuggling.
The court fixed today for hearing on the remand prayer against Rahim.
The IO also filed a petition with the same court seeking 10-day remand against former state minister Babar in the arms case filed under section-19 (ka) of the Arms Act.
The court fixed December 6 for hearing on the remand prayer against Babar.
Mentionable, both the two cases were filed with Karnaphuli police station on April 3 following the seizure of 10 trucks loaded with weapons and ammunition from the Chittagong Urea Fertiliser Limited jetty on April 1, 2004.
Regarding the remand prayer Public Prosecutor (PP) Kamal Uddin said, the petitions were filed to gather more information from the two persons.
He said Babar gave important but incomplete information during a five-day remand last month, so he was needed to be quizzed again.
Earlier on October 3, Babar was accused and shown arrested in the country's largest ever arms haul case. On November 1 he was placed on 5-day remand in the cases.
It was the first move by the CID after a Chittagong court on November 24 granted it three months more to complete the investigation into the sensational arms haul case.
