A Dhaka court today fixed April 29 for the submission of a probe report against seven people, including former Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Sayeed Khokon, in a money laundering case.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shahidul Islam set the new date on Wednesday. The court set a new date as the investigating agency of the case, the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI), could not submit its report today.

The other accused in the case are - Md Yusuf Ali Sardar, former chief revenue officer of the city corporation; Md Mazed, former deputy assistant engineer of the city corporation; and their assistants Kamrul Hassan, Helena Akter, Atiqur Rahman Swapan, and Md Walid.

On December 29, Delwar Hossain Dulu, president of shop owners' association of Fulbaria City Supermarket-2, filed the case with the court of Metropolitan Magistrate Md Ashek Imam. 

Earlier, the court accepted the statement of the plaintiff. On December 30, the court investigated the case and directed the PBI to submit a probe report on January 31.
