Ashiyan MD Nazrul faces arrest warrant

A Dhaka court has issued a warrant for the arrest of Ashiyan Lands Development Ltd Managing Director (MD) Md Nazrul Islam Bhuiyan and his personal assistant (PA) in a case filed for fraudulence and embezzling money.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Atiqul Islam issued the arrest warrant on Wednesday after taking cognisance of a report submitted by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of police.

Disclosing the matter on Thursday, plaintiff’s lawyer Monirul Islam Monir said, “We appealed to the court for issuing an arrest warrant for accused Nazrul Islam and his PA Zakir Hossain. The court granted the appeal and asked police to submit a report on February 1.”

On June 7 last year, Md Ali Hossain filed the case with a Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate court. After investigation, CID Assistant Superintendent of Police Mohammad Harunur Rashid submitted the report before the court.

According to the case statement, Ali Hossain, who owns a mosaic firm, struck a deal with Nazrul’s organisation on November 26, 2015 to supply different items.

From November 28 of the same year to April 30, 2021, he provided items worth Tk 32,400,785.

Accused Nazrul paid Tk 1.60 crore on different dates. However, he started harassing Ali Hossain instead of paying the remaining money. As a result, Ali Hossain’s small business was on the verge of collapse.

On May 30 last, when the victim sought the dues, Nazrul got angry with him and insulted him.

On Nazrul’s orders, he was beaten by 2-3 people, including Zakir, and forced to sign on a judicial stamp.

Earlier, arrest warrants were issued for the Ashiyan MD and 12 others in two other cases.
