Ex-state minister Mannan gets bail on surrender
A Dhaka court today granted bail to former state minister for housing and public works advocate Abdul Mannan Khan till October 13 in a corruption case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission against him for amassing illegal wealth.
Metropolitan Magistrate M Imdadul Haque passed the order after Mannan surrendered before the court and sought bail in the case.
On August 21, the ACC sued Mannan for concealing wealth information and discrepancies in his wealth statements.
The case statement against Mannan said he concealed information of his property worth Tk 4.59 lakh and he could not produce documents in favour of his income of Tk 75 lakh.
According to the income tax returns and other related documents of Mannan, he has movable properties worth Tk 96.89 lakh. But his wealth statement submitted to the ACC on March 9 stated that he owned movable properties worth Tk 92.30 lakh.
