On September 13 last year, CID had filed the case under the Money Laundering Act at Ramna police station

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has submitted a charge sheet against expelled Jubo League South unit President Ismail Chowdhury Samrat in a case filed for siphoning Tk222 crore to Singapore and Malaysia.

ACC Deputy Director Jahangir Alam, also the investigation officer of the case, submitted the charge sheet against Samrat with the court of Dhaka Senior Special Judge KM Imrul Kayesh, court sources said on Monday.

On September 13 last year, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) filed the case against Samrat under the Money Laundering Act with Ramna police station.

The money was siphoned off between December 2011 and August last year through a Dhaka-based company owned by Samrat.

According to the case documents, Samrat made 37 trips to Singapore, 3 to Malaysia and travelled to Dubai and Hong Kong once during the same period. His aide Arman, made 23 trips to Singapore during the same time.

Samrat earned money through conducting various illegal activities in Motijheel, Fakirapool, Paltan and Kakrail areas of Dhaka city, it said.

Samrat, a former president of Jubo League’s Dhaka South unit, came under the spotlight last year when RAB busted illegal gambling businesses at several sports clubs in Dhaka. 

He subsequently went into hiding before being arrested with Arman in Comilla on October 6 that year.

He was expelled from the Jubo League following his arrest.
