Land minister’s PS lands in jail on graft charges
A Dhaka court on Sunday sent Land Minister Shamsur Rahman Sherif's Personal Secretary Kutub Uddin Ahmed to jail in a case filed over corruption charges. Metropolitan Magistrate AKM Moinuddin Siddique passed the order after case investigation officer Mirza Zahidul Alam, deputy director of Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), produced him before the court. Earlier in the day, the ACC arrested Kutub from the capital’s Segunbagicha area at noon and a case was filed against him at Gulshan police station, said ACC spokesperson Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya. According to the case statement, Kutub illegally allotted a 10-katha plot in Gulshan in the names of some people, including his father-in-law and mother in law.
