A Dhaka court today placed G K Shamim, a top government listed contractor, on a nine-day fresh remand in connection with two separate cases.
Five-days remand prayer was granted in the money laundering case while four days for the case under the Arms Act filed with Gulshan Police Station.
Metropolitan Magistrate Mohammad Jashim passed the order after CID’s Senior Superintendent of Police Abu Sayeed and also the Investigation Officer of the cases produced Shamim before it with a ten-day remand prayer.
Yesterday, another Dhaka court placed Shamim’s seven bodyguards on four-day remand each for interrogation in the same case.

Rab members on September 20 arrested Shamim on charges of extortion and tender manipulation. His seven bodyguards were also arrested at the time.
