The court said Rashid's lawyers may move a regular bench with the petition
The High Court has again denied bail to suspended deputy inspector general (DIG) of prisons, Bazlur Rashid, in a case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).
The bench of Justice Jahangir Hossain Selim passed the order on Wednesday after holding a virtual hearing on a petition filed by Rashid on Monday, UNB reported.
In its order, the court said Rashid's lawyers may move a regular bench with the petition.
Advocate Mesbaul Islam stood for the suspended DIG, while Attorney General Mahbubey Alam and Deputy Attorney General Dr Bashir Ullah opposed the bail petition.
On January 29, the bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice KM Hafizul Alam denied his bail petition.
ACC arrested Rashid on October 20 last year on charge of accumulating money illegally.
According to the case statement, the suspended DIG failed to show any legal source of Tk3.8 crore which he had spent to buy a flat in a housing project at Siddheswari Road in Dhaka.
