A Chattogram court on Thursday denied bail to former Teknaf thana officer-in-charge (OC) Pradeep Kumar Das in a graft case filed in connection with amassing wealth from unknown sources.

Chattogram Metropolitan Senior Special Sessions Judge Sheikh Ashfaqur Rahman passed the order after a bail hearing at around 1pm, said Advocate Ratan Chakroborti, a lawyer of Pradeep Kumar Das.

ACC filed the case with the integrated court of Chattogram Divisional ACC office against Pradeep and his wife on August 23 in 2020 for amassing wealth worth around Tk 4 crore from unknown sources.

Mohammad Riaz Uddin, deputy director of ACC, submitted a charge sheet before the court against them on July 26 last.

After a long investigation, the ACC has reportedly found information that the couple acquired assets worth about Tk 4 crore, he said.

Pradeep is now in jail in a case filed over the murder of Major (retd) Rashed Md Sinha.

Sinha was shot dead by police at the Shamlapur check post on Marine Drive in Teknaf's Baharchhara area, on the night of July 31.
