A court in Dhaka on Thursday set February 4 for the testimony against suspended Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Prisons Md Bazlur Rashid in a case lodged over amassing illegal wealth of around Tk 3.14 crore. 

Judge Iqbal Hossain of Dhaka Special Judge Court-5 passed the order accepting the time plea of state as no witness was present in the court today. 

Earlier on October 22, the court had framed charges against Bazlur Rashid and set November 22 to start recording deposition of the prosecution witnesses.

Dhaka Senior Special Judge KM Imrul Qayesh on September 1 took the charge-sheet filed in the case into cognizance and transferred the case to Dhaka Special Judge Court-5 for further proceedings.

Investigation officer and Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) deputy director Md Nasir Uddin on August 26 had filed the charge-sheet.

The DIG was shown arrested on October 20, 2019, as he along with his wife appeared at ACC headquarters in capital’s Segunbagicha in connection with a case lodged for amassing illegal wealth of Tk 3.14 crore.
