The High Court today rejected a bail petition of Sohel Rana in a corruption case filed for violating building code in constructing Rana Plaza, which collapsed on April 24 last year killing at least 1,135 people.

The Anti-Corruption Commission on June 15 filed the case with Savar Police Station, saying Rana in league with other accused had built Rana Plaza violating the Bangladesh National Building Code.

The case was also lodged against Savar municipal mayor, Rana's parents and 14 others.

The HC bench of Justice Md Nizamul Haque and Justice Md Jahangir Hossain rejected the bail petition saying it was not moved properly before the bench.

Rana filed the petition seeking bail recently.

Rana, now in jail, was shown arrested in the case on June 24 this year.
