A Dhaka court yesterday directed court authorities to publish advertisements in two national dailies, asking former DIG Mizanur Rahman's wife, Sohelia Anar Ratna, and his brother Mahbubur Rahman, to appear before it on April 2 centring a graft case.
Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of the Senior Special Judge's Court of Dhaka passed the order.
Earlier on February 9, the same court accepted charges against Mizan, his nephew Sub-inspector Mahmudul Hasan, wife and brother, and issued arrest warrants against Ratna and Mahbubur after the investigation officer of the case showed them as fugitives in the charge sheet.
On June 24 last year, ACC filed the case with its Integrated District Office in Dhaka on charges of amassing over Tk 3 crore beyond known sources of income.
Following the case, Mizan was arrested while his nephew was sent to jail after his surrender.
GK SHAMIM'S WIFE SUBMITS APPLICATION TO RELEASE BANK ACCOUNTS
Shamima Sultana, wife of expelled Jubo League leader GK Shamim, yesterday submitted an application with the court, seeking release of bank accounts which were earlier frozen in connection with a graft case.
After hearing, Judge Emrul directed the case's investigation officer to submit a report by April 13 on whether to release it.
In the petition, Shamima's lawyer Shawkat Osman mentioned that his client, who is accused in the case, is a government employee and her salary was deposited in the frozen account.
His client cannot withdraw her salary, so she appealed to the court to release the accounts, the lawyer added.
On October 21 last year, ACC filed the graft case against GK Shamim and his mother Ayesha Akhter for amassing over Tk 297.7 crore through illegal means.
