Rashedul Haque Chisty gets bail in 2 graft cases
A Dhaka court today granted ad-interim bail to Rashedul Haque Chisty, son of Farmers Bank Ltd's former chairman of audit committee Mabubul Haque Chisty, in two graft cases.
Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of Senior Special Judge's Court of Dhaka passed the orders after his lawyer moved two separate bail petitions.
But Rashedul Haque cannot walk out of jail as there is a High Court stay order on his bail in another graft case, an official of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) confirmed to The Daily Star.
On July 21 this year, Mohammad Shahjahan Meraj, a deputy assistant director of the ACC, filed the first case against Mahbubul Haque, Rashedul Haque and four others with the ACC's Integrated District Office-1 of Dhaka for misappropriating of Tk 40,79, 21000 from the Farmers Bank Ltd.
The second case was filed with the same court on July 27 by Shahjahan Meraj against Rashedul Haque, Regent Group Chairman Mohammad Shahed, and two others for embezzling Tk 2.71 crore from Farmers Bank Ltd.
