Indictment hearing against Sinha Mar 25

Indictment hearing against Sinha Mar 25

A Dhaka court on Thursday set March 25 for holding hearing on charge framing in a graft case against former Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha along with 10 others.

Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Qayes set the date, transferring the case Dhaka Special Judge Court-4 for further hearing of the case.

Ten other accused are: former Farmers Bank managing director AKM Shameem, first vice-presidents Swapan Kumar Roy and Shafiuddin Askaree, senior executive vice-presidents Gazi Salauddin and Ziauddin Ahmed, and vice-president M Lutful Haque, bank clients Md Shahjahan, Niranjan Chandra Saha, his uncle Ranajit Chandra Saha, and Ranajit’s wife Santree Roy, BSS reports.

The court today also scrapped bail plea of AKM Shameem and Gazi Salauddin as they surrendered before it and sent them to jail.

Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) director Syed Iqbal Hossain filed the case against Sinha and 10 others with the anti-graft body’s Dhaka integrated district office-1 at Segunbagicha on July 10, 2019 for allegedly plundering Taka 4 crore from then Farmers Bank through fake loan documents.

According to the allegation, Md Shahjahan and Niranjan took the money on loan from then Farmers Bank, which was later transferred to Justice Sinha’s Sonali Bank account, showing it was earned from selling of his (Sinha’s) house.
