Arrest warrant issued against GK Shamim's mother in graft case

A Dhaka court  issued arrest warrant against Ayesha Akter, mother of controversial contractor Golam Kibria Shamim alias GK Shamim, in a case filed for amassing illegal wealth.

Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Qayesh passed the order, setting December 15 for submitting report on executing the order.

The court came up with the order, accepting the charge-sheet filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) against GK Shamim and his mother. As Ayesha Akter is still on run, the court issued arrest warrant against her.

   The ACC on October 21, 2019, filed the case against GK Shamim and his 
mother Ayesha Akter for amassing illegal wealth of Taka 297.08 crore.
