A Dhaka court on Monday sentenced Abdul Malek, a driver of the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) to 15 years of imprisonment in arms case.
Judge Md Robiul Alam of Dhaka Third Additional Metropolitan Sessions Court pronounced the verdict Monday afternoon.
A team of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on September 20 last year, arrested Malek for his involvement in businesses of illegal arms, fake notes and other illegal activities. RAB at the time recovered a foreign-made pistol, one magazine, five bullets, fake notes of Taka 1.5 lakh, a laptop and a mobile phone from his possession.
