A Dhaka court on Wednesday set April 23 for holding hearing on charge framing in a graft case against former chief justice Surendra Kumar Sinha and 10 others.

Judge Sheikh Nazmul Alam of Dhaka Special Judge Court-4 fixed the date as police refrained from producing accused Mahbubul Haque Chisti from jail amid corona fear, reports BSS.

Earlier on February 20, Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Qayes transferred the case to Dhaka Special Judge Court-4 for further hearing.

Ten other accused are: former Farmers Bank managing director AKM Shameem, first vice-presidents Swapan Kumar Roy and Shafiuddin Askaree, senior executive vice-presidents Gazi Salauddin and Ziauddin Ahmed, and vice-president M Lutful Haque, bank clients Md Shahjahan, Niranjan Chandra Saha, his uncle Ranajit Chandra Saha and Ranajit’s wife Santree Roy.

Earlier court dropped name of one accused as he died. 

Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Director Syed Iqbal Hossain filed the case against the former chief justice and 10 others with the anti-graft body’s Dhaka integrated district office-1 at Segunbagicha on July 10, 2019 for allegedly plundering Tk4 crore from then Farmers Bank through fake loan documents.

According to the allegation, Md Shahjahan and Niranjan took the money as loan from then Farmers Bank, which was later transferred to justice Sinha’s Sonali Bank account, showing it was earned from selling his (Sinha’s) house.
