A Chittagong court on Sunday denied bail to former Teknaf thana officer-in-charge (OC) Pradeep Kumar Das in a graft case filed in connection with amassing wealth from unknown sources.
Chittagong Metropolitan Senior Special Sessions Judge Sheikh Ashfaqur Rahman passed the order after a bail hearing at around 1pm, said Kazi Sanwar Hossain Lablu, a lawyer of Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).
Earlier on September 14, 2020, the court ordered to show OC Pradeep arrested in the graft case.
ACC filed the case against Pradeep and his wife on August 23 for amassing wealth worth around Tk4 crore from unknown sources.
Mohammad Riaz Uddin, deputy director of ACC, filed the case with the integrated court of Chattogram Divisional ACC office.
ACC sources said the anti-graft watchdog’s investigation against OC Pradeep started in 2018.
Pradeep and his wife were asked to submit their wealth statement on April 20 last year. They filed their statements in June that year.
After a long investigation, the ACC has reportedly found information that the couple acquired assets worth about Tk4 crore.
Pradeep is now in jail in a case filed over the murder of Major (retd) Rashed Md Sinha.
On the night of July 31, Sinha was shot dead by police at the Shamlapur check post on Marine Drive in Teknaf's Baharchhara area.
