The accused pleaded for bail before the court

Dinajpur court has sent three people including one former Barapukuria coal mine managing director to jail in a case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) for stealing coal from the mine.

Dinajpur District and Sessions Judge Aziz Ahmed Bhuiyan passed the order on Wednesday.

The accused pleaded for their bail when the police produced them before the court. However, the court sent them to jail after rejecting their bail pleas.

The court sent former Managing Director Habib Uddin Ahmed, Deputy General Manager AKM Khademul Islam, and General Manager Abu Taher Mohammad Nuruzzaman Chowdhury to jail.

Meanwhile, the Dinajpur court issued arrest warrants against seven former Barapukuria coal mine managing directors and 16 others in the same case on Tuesday.

From January 2006 till July 19, 2018, 143,727.92 tons of coals were stolen from the mine. The estimated value of which is around Tk243 crore.

The massive irregularity came to light when a team from Bangladesh Power Development Board (PDB) visited the coal mine and found that there was no adequate reserve of coal to run the Barapukuria thermal power plant.

Petrobangla formed a three-member committee to investigate the disappearance. The Anti-Corruption Commission also formed a three-member probe committee to look into the matter.
