Warrant against SIT Foundation chief, 6 others

Fresh cheating case filed against the Bogra-based NGO men

The Court of Chief Judicial Magistrate in Bogra on Thursday issued warrant against Md Abdul Mannan Sarker, chairman of swindler NGO Science and Information Technology (SIT) Foundation, and his six accomplices for failing to appear before the court as per its previous order.
Bogra Chief Judicial Magistrate Md Hasanuzzman had ordered Abdul Mannan Sarker and six others of the Bogra-based NGO to appear before the court on May 21 but they did not comply.
The court order followed a case filed by 'cheated' job seeker Md Mushtaq Zamal on April 21 against Abdul Mannan Sarker, who is also director of National Academy for Computer Tanning and Research (NACTAR) under the Ministry of Education, and six others.
Among the accused are Abdul Mannan's son SIT Foundation Executive Director ASM Rawshan Kabir alias Shahin and Regional Director Md Hafizur Rahman Zahangir.
Complainant Mushtaq Zamal said some SIT Foundation men including its chairman cheated him of deposited Tk 1.92 lakh ensuring him a job.
On Thursday, another job seeker Rina Sultana filed a criminal case with the same court against Abdul Mannan Sarker and two other SIT Foundation men including Md Hafizur Rahman Zahangir, for cheating Tk 1.15 lakh ensuring her a job.
Earlier five cases were filed against Md Abdul Mannan Sarker and other SIT Foundation men including his son Rawshon Kabir.
Previously Anti-Corruption Commotion (ACC) filed three corruption cases with Shahajahanpur Police Station against Abdul Mannan Sarker for misappropriation of huge government money as director of NACTAR.
A number of job seekers in a press conference at Bogra Press Club had complained to the local journalists that SIT Foundation embezzled about Tk 12 crore that the NGO received as deposit money from 4,000 job seekers.
