A Dhaka court has acquitted Erfan Selim, son of Dhaka 7 lawmaker Haji Selim, in a drug case filed against him.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shahinur Rahman issued the order after accepting a probe report submitted by Chawkbazar police station in the case.

General recording officer sub-inspector Showkat Akbar confirmed to the Dhaka Tribune on Monday.

Earlier on February 18, Dhaka Special Tribunal-1 exempted Erfan in an arms case filed with Chawkbazar police station.

On February 13, police pressed charges against Erfan and four others in a case filed over the assault of a navy officer in Dhaka.

On January 5, a Dhaka court granted bail to Erfan in two cases under arms and narcotics control acts, in which he was sentenced to one year imprisonment by a mobile court, after Chawkbazar police station Officer-In-Charge (investigation) Delower Hossain, also investigation officer (IO) of the cases, submitted a petition seeking discharge of the accused.

In a probe report submitted to the court, the IO said police did not find enough evidence to prove the charges against Erfan in the two cases.

On October 26, last year, Erfan, also the-then councillor of Dhaka south City Corporation’s ward-30, was sentenced by a Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) mobile court to six months jail over recovery of illegal alcohol and another six months for possessing unregistered walkie-talkies.

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.
