Shahed placed on six-day remand
A Dhaka court yesterday placed Regent Group Chairman Mohammad Shahed on a six-day remand in a case filed against him on charge of misappropriating Tk 45 lakh from a house owner.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Md Masud-Ur- Rahman passed order after Md Farukuzzaman Mollick, a sub-inspector of Pallabi Police Station and also the case's investigation officer, produced him before his court with a 10-day remand prayer.
In the remand prayer, the IO said the accused on May 8, 2016 rented four floors measuring 16,148 square feet for running his "Regent Hospital Limited" in Pallabi area in the capital.
The house-rent was fixed at Tk 2,50,000 per month. But the accused did not pay house-rent which stands an amount of Tk 45,5000 from May 8, 2016 to March 12 this year.
So he needs to be remanded to find out more information about his fraud and to know whereabouts of others responsible for committing such offences, the IO added.
On the other hand, the defence submitted a petition along with cancellation of the remand prayer.
After hearing both sides, the magistrate turned down his bail petition and issued the remand order.
