HC asks BNP leader Mosharraf to surrender in 50 days
The High Court today directed former state minister for energy AKM Mosharraf Hossain to surrender before a lower court in 50 days in connection with Barapukuria coal mine case.
The HC bench of Justice Bhabani Prasad Singha and Justice ASM Mujibur Rahman came up with the order clearing the way for the lower court to resume the trial proceedings in the case.
The court also vacated HC’s earlier order that had stayed the trial proceedings.
The Anti-Corruption Commission lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan told The Daily Star that Musharraf will have to surrender before the lower court within 50 days after the order will reach to the court.
The ACC filed the case in February, 2008 and the HC later stayed the proceedings later.
