Kushtia lawyer held for filing 'false' cases

A magistrate court here yesterday sent a lawyer to jail for filing false rape cases against innocent persons through his daughter.
Advocate Wazedul Islam Khan alias Chad hailing from Chakharipur in Khoksa upazila was arrested by police Sunday night.
Police said Chad filed at least 30 rape cases through his daughter against different people in his area.
On investigation, police found the cases to be false and lodged complaints with Kushtia Bar Association. Kushtia Bar Association suspended his membership on August 23.
In a similar incident, the lawyer filed a false rape case against Khoksa police station officer-in-charge (OC) last year. Police raided his Chakharipur house in Khoksa in this connection and arrested him.
