The Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) is not responsible for three years jail sentence for Jahalam, the ACC told in the High Court’s report. 

On Tuesday morning, the ACC has submitted the report to the High Court. 

In the report, it is saying that Jahalam jailed for nearly three years in the 33 cases on charges of Sonali Bank fraud, which was around Tk 18.5 crore. 

But the main accused in the case is Salek. Jahalam was present in the court along with three years in jail. He is a jute mill worker in profession.

After the report published in the media, it got the Supreme Court’s attention and the release of Jahalam was started. 

On February 4, Jahalam was released from Kashimpur jail. 

The ACC submitted the report to the High Court bench of Justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and Justice KM Kamrul Kader on Tuesday morning, whether the ACC has any liability in this case. 

The bench will hold hearing on the matter on Wednesday, ACC lawyer Khurshid Alam told the media after submitting the report.
