Court upholds 14-year jail for Ragib Ali

UNB

Sylhet: A court on Thursday upheld the 14 years imprisonment of industrialist Ragib Ali and 16 years imprisonment of his son, daughter and two others each in a case filed for forging legal papers and grabbing the endowed land of Tarapur Tea Estate in Sylhet, reports UNB.

Judge Dilip Kumar Bhoumik of Sylhet Special Sessions Judges Court passed the order after hearing the appeal of the convicts.

Earlier on February 2, 2017, Sylhet Chief Metropolitan Magistrate sentenced Ragib Ali to 14 years and 16 years imprisonment to each of his son, daughter and two others in the case. Besides, the court acquitted Sebayet Pankaj Kumar Gupto.

The other convicts are Ragib's son Abdul Hye, daughter Rozina Qaudir, son-in-law Abdul Qaudir and a relative Dewan Moshtaque Majid.  Among them, his daughter and son-in-law are still on the run. On 25 August, 1999, the then parliamentary watchdog on land affairs found that Tarapur Tea Estate grabbed a vast area of an endowment property and set up several establishments on the land illegally. Later, the subcommittee of the parliamentary watchdog recommended for taking legal action against the illegal occupants.  SM Abdul Hye, the land commissioner of Sylhet Sadar, filed two cases against six people, including Ragib Ali, with Sylhet Kotwali Police Station on 27 September, 2005.

One of the cases was filed for grabbing endowment property of Tarapur Tea Estate after fabricating document of the Ministry of Land against Ragib and his son Hye and another for misappropriating Tk 1,000 crore of the government.
