Ex-CJ Sinha acquitted in bribery case
A Dhaka court on Sunday acquitted former Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha of a bribery case filed by former BNP leader Nazmul Huda.

In the case Huda claimed SK Sinha demanded bribe from him and misused power
A former Supreme Court Bar Association president Huda resigned as BNP vice-chairman in 2012.
