A Dhaka court has placed Golam Kibria Shamim alias GK Shamim and former Jubo League leader Khaled Mahmud Bhuiyan on seven days remand in cases filed for amassing illegal wealth.

Acting Judge Al Mamun of Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge Court passed the order on Sunday.

Earlier in the day, two investigation officers (IO) of Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) produced them before the court with a ten-day remand for each.

The court also rejected their bail petitions.

On October 21, ACC filed two cases against GK Shamim and Khalid on charges of amassing illegal wealth.

Shamim and his mother Ayesha Akhter were charged for earning Tk297 crore illegally and Khaled has been charged for acquiring Tk5.5 crore illegally.
