A court in Dhaka today has set March 29 for the charge framing hearing against Md Monir Hossain, widely known as “Golden Monir”, in an arms case.
Dhaka’s Third Additional Metropolitan Sessions Judge Rabiul Alam’s court set the new date on Tuesday.
The case was scheduled to be heard on the day. However, as Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Kayes was on leave, the court in charge fixed a new date for the hearing.
Earlier on March 8, the court took cognizance of the charges against Monir and set March 16 for a hearing on charges framed against the accused in the case.
Md Abdul Malek, an inspector of the Detective Branch of Police and the investigation officer of the case, submitted two charge sheets – one for possessing firearms and the other for possessing narcotics – to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate's Court of Dhaka on January 26.
Both the cases were filed with Badda Police Station under the arms and narcotics control act.
The Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested Monir on November 21 last year and recovered a foreign-made pistol, bullets, foreign liquor, currencies of 10 countries, eight kg of gold ornaments, and Tk 1.9 crore in cash from his Merul Badda residence.
