In their final report, police have claimed not to have found any evidence supporting the charges against Erfan in the cases
A Dhaka court on Thursday exempted Erfan Selim, son of Dhaka-7 lawmaker and Awami League leader Haji Md Salim, in arms case filed with Chawkbazar police station.
Dhaka Special Tribunal-1 Judge KM Imrul Kayes passed the order after accepting a probe report, submitted by Chawkbazar police station, on the case.
On January 5, Delower Hossain, officer-in-charge (investigation) and also investigation officer (IO) of the case, submitted the probe reports on arms and drug cases before the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate court mentioning that they did not find enough evidence to prove the charges against him in the two cases.

The IO also submitted petition seeking discharge of the accused from the cases.
The two cases were filed under the narcotics control and arms acts on October 27 following a raid conducted by RAB at MP Haji Salim’s Old Dhaka residence in the capital’s Chawkbazar area.
Police, however, submitted charge sheets against Erfan’s bodyguard Zahidul Mollah in two other cases filed under narcotics control and arms acts as they found the allegations as true.
Erfan and Zahidul Mollah were arrested after a case was filed against him on charge of reportedly attacking Lt Wasif Ahmed Khan of Bangladesh Navy in Dhanmondi area of the capital on October 25 last year.
