A Dhaka court on Wednesday set June 27 for resuming trial in a case filed against former chief justice Surendra Kumar Sinha and 10 others on charges of embezzling Tk 4 crore and laundering the money.

Judge Sheikh Nazmul Alam of Dhaka Special Judge Court-4 fixed the date as the subordinate courts and tribunals started holding hearings of cases with physical appearances.

The defence was scheduled to cross examine the investigation officer and Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Director Benjir Ahmed after the witness was testified before the court on April 1. But his cross examine could not hold as the court proceedings came to standstill due to the surge in Covid-19 cases.
