As a government servant, the suspended Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Prisons, Bazlur Rashid, had earned only Tk 52 lakh legally during his service between 1993 and 2018.

He had no parental property.

However, he purchased a flat of Tk 3.09 crore and gave the payment in cash only within two months which was beyond his income sources.

Judge Md Iqbal Hossain of the Special Judge's Court-5 of Dhaka made the observations today while sentencing him to five years in jail in a graft case.
