Kishoreganj Senior Judicial Magistrate Md Iqbal Mahmud ordered the remand

A Kishoreganj court has granted police a five-day remand of suspended jailer of Chittagong Jail Sohel Rana over a money laundering case in his name.

Kishoreganj Senior Judicial Magistrate Md Iqbal Mahmud ordered the remand at the district’s the Judicial Magistrate's Court 2 on Tuesday morning.

Investigation Officer of the case and deputy director of the Anti-Corruption Commission’s (ACC) Mymensingh wing Md Jahangir Alam originallyasked for a seven-day remand in the case. 

Court Inspector A Gaffar said: “It is important to interrogate the suspect in order to find the source of the illegal money in his possession.”

However, Advocate Kuleshwar Nag Kajal, representing the defendant, said the demand for a further remand is pointless as the suspect was caught red-handed and has since fully confessed to his crimes.

On October 26, Bhairab Railway police arrested Sohel Rana, the jailer of the Chittagong Central Jail, from a Bijoy Express train heading out from the port city in the afternoon. At the time of the arrest, he had 12 bottles of phensedyl, Tk44.4 lakh cash, and over Tk1 crore in cheques in his possession.The Department of Prisons suspended Sohel following the incident.

A three-man probe committee consisting of Barisal Deputy Inspector General of Prisons Sagir Mia, Jessore Central Jail Senior Jail Supervisor Kamal Hossain, and Joypurhat Prison Jailer Tarek Kamal has been formed to investigate the matter.
