Probe report in graft case against Papia Aug 26

 A Dhaka court set on Wednesday  August 26 to submit probe report in a case lodged against expelled Jubo Mohila League leader Shamima Nur Papia and her husband Mofizur Rahman Sumon for amassing illegal wealth of more than Taka six crore.

Taking the ejahar of the case into cognizance, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate KM Imrul Qayes passed the order.

Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Deputy Director Shaheen Ara Momtaz filed the case with its Dhaka district office-1 on August 4 for amassing illegal wealth of Taka 6.24 crore.

According to the case documents, Papia and her husband from October 12, 2019, to February 22, 2020, rented a total of 25 rooms of a five-star hotel in Dhaka and paid more than Taka 3.23 crore cash as room rent, bills for bars, spa, laundry and food service.

Papia spent around Taka 40 lakh in shopping during her stay at the hotel, but couldn’t show any valid source of income against this huge sum.

Earlier on February 22, the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested Papia and her husband, along with two of their accomplices, at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport with counterfeit banknotes, foreign currencies and cash.
