Jubo League leader GK Shamim's seven bodyguards have been shown arrested in a money laundering case filed with Gulshan police station.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Devdas Chandra Adhikari on Thursday granted a petition submitted by Senior Assistant Superintendent of Police Abu Sayeed of Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to show GK Shamim, and his seven bodyguards arrested in the case.

Earlier, Metropolitan Magistrate Habibur Rahman issued the order after Jalal Uddin, investigation officer of the case, produced them before the court upon completion of the four day remand.

“During the remand, the accused revealed important information that could not be disclosed for the sake of ongoing investigation of the case,” the IO said.

Defense counsels filed separate bail petitions mentioning that they are not involved with the said offence so may be allowed bail.

After a hearing, the court sent them to jail rejecting their bail petition in the arms case filed with Gulshan police station.

On September 20, Rapid Action Battalion arrested Jubo League leader Golam Kibria Shamim,  recovered a large amount of money, arms, and drugs from Niketon in Dhaka's Gulshan area. RAB also detained seven of his bodyguards, and seized their arms.

The next day, Shamim was placed on a 10-day remand in cases filed under the Arms Act, and Narcotics Control Act.
