A senior official of Bangladesh Jute Mills Corporation (BJMC) was given a court order to be put behind the bars with allegations of involvement in the embezzlement of Tk7.43 cr of public money.
A Dhaka court gave the order of suspension of BJMC General Manager Jahangir Hossain on Sunday.
Metropolitan Magistrate Kazi Kamrul Islam passed the order and rejected his bail petition after Anti-Corruption Commission's (ACC) Assistant Drector Shafiullah, also the investigation officer of the case, produced him before the court seeking permission to keep him in jail until end of the probe.
Jahangir was arrested earlier in connection with the case that was filed against him for his alleged involvement in embezzlement of the money between 2012 and 2014.
The ACC arrested Jahangir in the capital following a case filed against him with Khalishpur police in Khulna on December 9, 2016.
