Earlier on August 29, 2017, a Dhaka court sentenced Rana plaza owner Sohel Rana to three years imprisonment in a case filed for not submitting his wealth statement to the ACC. On April 1, 2015, the ACC sent a notice to a senior jail superintendent of Kashimpur Jail in Gazipur, where Rana was detained, asking him to inform Rana that the ACC had asked him to submit his wealth statement. On April 26, 2015, Rana sent back the notice without giving any information on his wealth statement. On behalf of Rana, his wife made a plea before the ACC seeking more time to submit the wealth statement. The commission rejected the appeal on May 18, 2015, and approved the filing of a non-submission case. On April 28, 2013, Rana was arrested from Benapole while he was trying to flee to India. At least 1,136 people were killed in the Rana Plaza collapse on April 24, 2013.
