Graft Case: HC orders Khoka's son, daughter to surrender
The High Court yesterday directed Ishraque Hossain and Sarika Sadeque, son and daughter of former Dhaka City Corporation (DCC) mayor Sadeque Hossain Khoka, to surrender before the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate's Court in Dhaka in four weeks in connection with two graft cases.
The bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice KM Hafizul Alam passed the order after disposing of their bail petitions.
Deputy Attorney General AKM Amin Uddin Manik said the HC also refused to pass any order on their pleas, seeking direction upon police not to harass or arrest the siblings in connection with the cases.
Ishraque, a BNP aspirant in the national election, and his sister Sarika appeared before the bench seeking anticipatory bail in two graft cases.
The ACC filed two cases with Ramna Police Station against the siblings in 2010 for not submitting wealth statements, said Deputy Attorney General AKM Amin Uddin Manik.
Barrister Ajmalul Hossain appeared for Ishraque and Sarika, while Advocate Khurshid Alam Khan argued for the ACC.
