The High Court (HC) has ordered the trial court to dispose of the case against BNP Standing Committee member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), reports UNB.
A division bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice Khizir Hayat passed the order rejecting a petition filed by Gayeshwar Chandra in 2010 seeking cancellation of the case.
Lawyer Nitai Roy Chowdhury appeared for the petitioner in court while Advocate M Khurshid Alam Khan for the ACC and Deputy Attorney General AKM Amin Uddin Manik for the state.
On January 5 in 2009, the ACC lodged a complaint with Ramna police station against Gayeshwar for amassing illegal wealth of Tk 2.86 crore and concealing the information.
ACC submitted a charge-sheet to the court on July 5 of the same year.
In 2010, the High Court stayed the trail proceedings in the case in 2010 as Gayeshwar filed a petition to quash the case. At the same time, the court issued a rule in this regard.
