A Dhaka court on Sunday framed charges against Regent Group Chairman Shahed Karim in a case filed against him on charge of amassing illegal wealth worth Tk 1.69 crore.
Judge Mohammad Nazrul Islam of the Dhaka Special Judge’s Court-10 passed the order rejecting his discharge petition in the case.
The court also fixed May 20 to start recording deposition of witnesses of the case.
On March 1 last year, Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Deputy Director Farid Ahmed Patwary filed the case against Shahed with its Dhaka Integrated Office-1 on charges of amassing the Tk 1.69 crore illegal wealth.
After an investigation, the ACC submitted a charge sheet to the court against Shahed in the case on February 2.
