Ctg cocaine haul: Accused files Tk 100-cr compensation case

Now, an accused in the case filed over the seizure of liquid cocaine at Chittagong port on June 8, 2015 has filed a Tk 100-crore compensation case against seven business establishments in connection with the incident.

Nur Mohammad, owner of edible oil importer 'Khan Jahan Ali Limited', filed the case with Chittagong Joint District Judge Court-3 on Sunday.

Judge Abdul Quader took cognigance of the complaint and asked the owners of the seven business houses to appear before the court on October 4.

The seven business establishments are Cosco Container Lines, Cosco Shipping Lines, SRL, South Freight Logistic, MV Thorostilian, PIL Ltd and an organisation of Bolivia.

Ibrahim Hossain Chowdhury Babul, a lawyer of the plaintiff, claimed that Nur has no link with the import of cocaine under the cover of edible oil through Chittagogn port. "The accused brought the cocaine in connivance with each other keeping Khan Jahan Ali Limited in the dark, thus harassing my client financially and socially," he said.

The presence of liquid cocaine was found in 107 drums of a consignment of Bolivian sunflower oil which the customs intelligence officials seized at Chittagong port on June 8, 2015.

Laboratory tests on the liquid samples from the consignment have detected cocaine in the drums, which was imported under the name of Bolivian sunflower oil.

Sub-inspector of Bandar Police Station Osman Goni filed a case against Nur Mohammad, owner of 'Khan Jahan Ali Limited', and its employee Sohel under the Narcotics Control Act on June 28 of the same year.

Police arrested Sohel soon after the consignment seizure.

On April 3 last, Additional Superintendent of Police of Rab-7 Mahiuddin Faruk submitted chargesheet against 10 people, including Nur Mohammad and his brother Mostak Ahmed, in the case.

Nur Mohammad, who was arrested on January 15, 2016, was released from the jail on July 11 last on bail.unb.
