COURT CORNER

Indictment hearing in Gatco graft case on Sept 25

BSS, Dhaka

A Dhaka court yesterday fixed September 25 to hold hearing on charge framing in Gatco graft case against BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia and others.

Acting Judge Robiul Alam of the Dhaka Special Judge Court -3 reset the date for holding the hearing in the case at newly-constructed temporary court in front of the Keraniganj Central Jail. Yesterday was set for holding hearing on charge framing, but the jail authorities couldn’t produce Khaleda Zia before court as she is undergoing treatment at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University

(BSMMU).

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed the case against 13 people, including Khaleda and her younger son Arafat Rahman on September 2, 2007, with Tejgaon Police Station for their role in corruption regarding penning a contract with Global Agro Trade (Pvt) Co Ltd (Gatco) for container management at inland container depots in Dhaka and Chattogram.

Formal charge was submitted against 24 on May 13, 2008. But of the 24 accused, six including Arafat, Saifur Rahman and Matiur Rahman Nizami have died so far.

Probe report in case over Rajib’s death in accident Sept 26

BSS, Dhaka

 

A court here yesterday set September 26 for submitting probe report in the case lodged over death of Rajib Hossain, who died after being stuck between two buses in the capital last year.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Sarafuzzaman Ansari set the date as investigation officer failed to submit the report yesterday.

Rajib Hossain, a third year bachelor degree student of Government Titumir College, died on April 17, 2018, ending his two-week struggle for life after losing his right hand being trapped between two speedy buses at Sonargaon Crossing in the city on April 3, 2018.

A case was filed on the day of the accident with capital’s Shahbagh Police Station and the police later arrested drivers of the two buses. They are still behind bars.

After the death of Rajib, police pleaded to add a section in the case for causing his death through rough driving.
