A Dhaka court on Monday fixed October 12 for delivering its judgment in a case filed against ex-state minister for Home Lutfozzaman Babar for amassing illegal wealth worth Tk 7.5 crore.

Judge Mohammad Shahidul Islam of Dhaka Special Judge Court-7 fixed the date after closing the law-point arguments from both sides.

On January 13, 2008, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed the case with Ramna Model Police Station.

On July 16, 2008, deputy assistant secretary of ACC, Rupok Kumar Saha submitted a chargesheet against him.

Babar was arrested from his Gulshan residence on May 28, 2007. He was sentenced to 17 years’ imprisonment in an arms case on October 30, 2007.

He was also sentenced to death in the 10-truck arms haul and August-21 grenade attack cases.

In 2018, a speedy trial tribunal sentenced 19 people, including Babar, to death in a case filed over the August-21 grenade attack on an Awami League rally in the capital in 2004.
