Money laundering case: Samrat’s close aide denied bail


A Dhaka court today rejected a bail petition of EnamulHaque Arman, a close aide of expelled Jubo League leader Ismail Hossain Chowdhury Samrat, in a Tk 195 crore money laundering case.

Metropolitan Magistrate Md Eleas Miah passed the order after his lawyer moved it on grounds that their client was implicated in the case as part of a conspiracy to harass him.

The prosecution, however, opposed it, saying Samrat along with the accused had committed offences by laundering the money to Malaysia and Singapore. So, the bail petition should be rejected.

Upon hearing both sides, the magistrate turned down his bail petition.

Earlier on Tuesday, Samrat and Arman were shown arrested in the case after Md Mehedi Maksud, an inspector of Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and also the investigation officer of the case, submitted a petition in this regard.

On September 13 this year, CID filed the case against the duo under the Money Laundering Act with Ramna Police Station.
