Ex-Ameer of Sylhet Jamaat , 3 others sued

Dr. Shafiqur Rahman

Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) has filed a case against four persons including immediate past chief of Sylhet city Jamat-e-Islami and former deputy commissioner of Sylhet for dodging Tk 2,55,20,000 government revenue.
ACC Deputy Director (in charge for Sylhet division) Dhali Abdus Salam filed the case with Sylhet Kotwali police station Monday evening.
The accused are the then deputy commissioner of Sylhet Abul Hossain (now joint secretary), the then sub-registrar of Sylhet Sadar Dewan Mozahar Hossain, former Sylhet city Jamaat Ameer and managing director of Golden Tower Dr. Shafiqur Rahman and Md. Nurul Islam Khan.
They did it in connivance with each other while purchasing lands for the said multi-storied shopping mall.
Dr. Shafique, Nurul Islam Khan and others bought a 92 decimal plot of land worth Tk 18 crore in the name of Golden Tower in the city's Ambarkhana area in 2003.
By abusing power and influence, they persons registered the land showing its price at Tk 40 lakh only, dodging Tk 2,55,20,000 government revenue, the ACC said in the case.
The then sub-registrar registered at a fee of only Tk 5,80,000 against the actual fee of 2.61 crore.
The ACC case also mentioned that Dr. Shafiqur negotiated with the sellers, fixing the price at Tk 18 crore on October 20, 2002 and made the payment in installments.
But later he concealed the contract and registered the land at a lower price.
