A court yesterday issued arrest warrants for 23 people, including seven former managing directors of Barapukuria Coal Mining Company Limited (BCMCL), in a case filed over coal worth Tk 230 crore going missing from a mine in Dinajpur.
A senior special judge’s court in Dinajpur issued the warrant after accepting the charge sheet, submitted by the Anti-Corruption Commission, in the case, ACC lawmaker Aminur Rahman told The Daily Star.
None of the accused were present at the court yesterday.
ACC Deputy Director in Dinajpur Ashiqur Rahman had submitted the charge sheet to the court on July 24.
The accused former BCMCL managing directors are Mahabubur Rahman, Abdul Aziz Khan, Khurshid Alam, Quamruzzaman, Anisuzzaman, SM Nurul Aurangjeb, and Habib Uddin Ahmed.
Following the detection of 1.45 lakh tonnes coal going missing in early July last year, BCMCL Manager Anisur Rahman filed the case with Parbatipur police station, accusing 19 officials. The ACC later took over the investigation.
