The High Court today rejected the bail petition of suspended Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Prisons Bazlur Rashid in a case against him on charge of amassing Tk 3.08 crore beyond known source of income.
The HC bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder passed the order after holding a virtual hearing on the petition.
Advocate Mesbaul Islam Asif stood for Bazlur Rashid in a video conference in the court while advocate Khurshid Alarm Khan represented the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) during the virtual hearing.
On February 6 this year, a lower court of HC bench refused to grant bail to Bazlur Rashid in the same case. The ACC arrested Bazlur Rahman on October 20 last year on charges of bribery from Segunbagicha area.
According to the case statement, Bazlur signed a contract with a real estate company in 2018 to buy a flat in the capital's Siddeshwari Road area at Tk 3.09 crore.
