SI sent to jail for amassing illegal wealth

CHATTOGRAM: A Chattogram court on Wednesday sent a suspended sub-inspector (SI) of Bangladesh Police to jail in a case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) for amassing illegal wealth worth Tk 1.38 crore.

The accused was identified as SI Nawab Ali of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in Dhaka.

Earlier, the authorities suspended Nawab after filing the case.

The court of Chattogram Metropolitan Sessions Judge Sheikh Ashfaqur Rahaman passed the order after Nawab surrendered before it with bail petition on Wednesday, said ACC Public Prosecutor (PP) Mahmudul Hoque.

The court also rejected the bail prayer submitted for Nawab, said the PP.
