A Dhaka court is set to deliver its judgement in a graft case against former state minister for home affairs Lutfozzaman Babar on Tuesday.

Earlier on October 4, Judge Mohammad Shahidul Islam of Dhaka Special Judge Court-7 had set today for pronouncing judgement as both the prosecution and defence concluded their parts of closing arguments on that day.

The court on September 21 read out the charges brought against Babar and testimonies of the prosecution witnesses. The court after that asked Babar whether he wants to plead guilty or not.

In reply, Babar had pleaded not guilty and demanded justice from the court.

On January 13 in 2008, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed the case against Babar with Ramna Police Station for amassing illegal wealth of around Tk 7.05 crore.

Deputy Assistant Director of the ACC Rupok Kumar Saha on July 16, 2008, filed a charge sheet in the case.

Later on August 12 in 2008, the court indicted Babar in the graft case.
