A court in Chattogram yesterday placed two data entry operators of Election Commission (EC) on seven days remand each, in a case filed over fake national identity (NID) cards for Rohingyas.
The court of Chattogram Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Khairul Amin passed the remand order after the investigation officer placed 10-day remand prayer for them, said Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC) (Prosecution) Mohammad Kamruzzaman of CMP.
The duo -- Shagar Chowdhury and Satya Sundor De -- surrendered before a court of Chattogram on Sunday, on completion of their four weeks’ anticipatory bail secured from High Court.
Investigators of Counter Terrorism (CT) of CMP said Shagar and Satya had been absconding since filing the case and have passwords of different servers of EC. Using those, they entered dubious data of Rohingyas into the server and printed it later.
On September 15, ACC found that using the official devices, several syndicates provided Bangladeshi NID cards to Rohingyas through forgery, in exchange of huge sums.
An election officer of Double Mooring filed a case on September 17.
