A Dhaka court yesterday framed charges against Golam Kibria Shamim alias GK Shamim and his seven bodyguards in an arms case filed with Gulshan Police Station.

Judge Md Rabiul Alam, Additional Metropolitan Sessions Judge's Court-3, passed the order after dismissing a petition filed by the accused seeking their acquittal.

 RAB filed three cases — one under the Narcotics Control Act, another under the Money-laundering Prevention Act and the other under the Arms Act — with Gulshan Police Station against Shamim who was arrested along with his seven body guards during a drive at his Niketan office on September 20.   RAB raided the house and office of Shamim, who amassed huge wealth as a contractor identifying himself as a Juba League leader, in the Niketan area and arrested him with illegal firearms and a huge amount of money.

 They seized Fixed Deposit Receipts (FDRs) worth Tk 165 crore, Tk 1.8 crore in cash and foreign currencies.

 A foreign-made pistol, seven shotguns and a huge cache of bullets were also seized from the office of GKB and  Company Pvt Limited owned by Shamim.
