The expelled Jubo Mohila League leader and her husband were sentenced to 20 years in jail for illegal possession of firearms in 2020

A Dhaka court on Wednesday framed charges against expelled Jubo Mohila League leader Shamima Nur Papia, her husband Mofizur Rahman Sumon alias Sumon Chowdhury and two others in a case lodged under the Special Powers Act over recovering fake foreign currencies from their possession.

Judge Fatema Ferdous of Dhaka Metropolitan Special Tribunal-6 passed the order and set November 21 for recording depositions of the witnesses.

The other two accused are Papia and Sumon's associates Sabbir Khandakar and Sheikh Tayeba Nur.

Police on November 29, 2020, filed a charge sheet in the case.

Police in the charge sheet alleged that the accused were carrying fake currencies for a long time for selling and were trying to smuggle those abroad. Twenty people were made witnesses in the case.

A Dhaka court on October 12, 2020 convicted Papia and her husband in an arms case and sentenced them to 20 years’ imprisonment.

The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on February 22, 2020 detained Papia and her husband, along with two of their accomplices, from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport with counterfeit banknotes, foreign currencies and cash.

RAB later raided their two luxurious flats in the capital's Indira Road area and recovered a foreign pistol, two magazines, 20 bullets, five bottles of foreign liquor and Tk58.41 lakh in cash, among other things.
