The two are accused of amassing illegal wealth

A Dhaka Court on Sunday sent Department of Passport and Immigration (DPI) Deputy Assistant Director Motaleb Hossain and his wife Israt Jahan to jail in two cases filed on charges of amassing illegal wealth and concealing wealth information.

Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of the Dhaka's Senior Special Judge court passed the order, rejecting their bail petitions in the cases filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).

Earlier in the day, the couple surrendered before the court and submitted bail petitions.
