ACC had filed the graft case against Papia and her husband Sumon on charges of amassing illegal wealth worth Tk6.24C on August 4

A Dhaka court on Monday put Shamima Nur Papia, expelled general secretary of the Jubo Mohila League’s Narsingdi district unit, and her husband Mofizur Rahman Sumon on a three-day remand each in a case filed over illegally amassing about Tk 6.24 crore.

Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of Dhaka Senior Special Judges Court issued the order after Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Deputy Director Shahin Ara Momtaj, who is the IO of the case, produced the couple in court with a three-day remand plea.

Earlier on August 4, the ACC filed the case against Papia and her husband Sumon on charges of their amassing of illegal wealth worth Tk6.24 crore.

The case was filed with the ACC’s Integrated District Office Dhaka-1 against the couple under Section 27 (1) of the Anti-Corruption Commission Act-2004.

According to the case statement, the anti-graft commission has found that the couple amassed illegal wealth worth Tk6,24,18,000.

On February 28, the ACC launched the enquiry against Papia and her husband on charges of accumulating illegal wealth.

On February 23, the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) raided two flats belonging to Papia and Sumon after it had arrested them at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport on February 22.

RAB members seized counterfeit notes, foreign currencies, and around Tk 2.5 lakh in cash. RAB also seized around Tk 58 lakh in cash in its raid on two flats in Dhaka’s Indira Road area and a presidential suite at a five-star hotel.

Earlier, on October 12, a Dhaka court sentenced Shamima Nur Papia, and her husband Mofizur Rahman Sumon to 27 years in jail in an arms case.
