After sedition charges for conspiring with the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad to topple the government, BNP leader Aslam Chowdhury on Monday sent to jail in connection with eight separate cases for cheque fraud.
The Court of Chittagong Metropolitan Magistrate Abdul Kader passed the order after police produced him before the court in connection with eight separate charges filed for bank-cheque frauds, BSS reports quoting court sources.
The newly-promoted BNP joint secretary general Aslam took a total of TK 36 crore 80 lakh as loan from the city's CDA Branch of Pubali Bank Limited on different terms between the years of 2013 and 2015.
As the cheques submitted by him to the bank to repay the loan were dishonoured, eight separate cases were filed against him with city's Kotwali Police Station in this connection.
Police arrested Aslam from Dhaka's Khilkhet area on May 15 and later brought charges of treason accusing him of conspiring to topple the government in collusion with the Israeli spy agency Mossad.
