District and Session Judge Meer Shafiqul Islam has passed the order of sending Abdur Rahman, Principal of Godagari Government College, to jail when he appeared in the court. –reports BSS.

Last year, Umrul Haque, Vice-principal of the college, had lodged a corruption case against the principal with the court. After taking the case into cognizance the court gave responsibility to the integrated district office of the Anti Corruption Commission for investigation.

Alamgir Hossain, Assistant Director of the ACC’s Integrated District Office, investigated the case.

The investigation report revealed that principal Abdur Rahman misappropriated Tk 72,42,730 from the college fund.

Jahangir Alam said he has submitted a charge-sheet to the court accusing the principal earlier. But he remained absconding for long. While he appeared for seeking bail, the court sent him to jail rejecting bail plea today.
