Fuad is accused in at least eight cases, including one filed over siphoning off Tk2,000 crore out of the country

Police have arrested AHM Fuad, the assistant personal secretary (APS) of former minister and Awami League’s Advisory Council member Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, in a case file over alleged laundering of Tk2,000 crore.

Fuad was arrested from Bashundhara Residential Area in Dhaka on Tuesday night, Faridpur district’s Additional Superintendent of Police Jamal Pasha told the media on Wednesday.

He said Fuad, an expelled Awami Jubo League leader, is accused in at least eight cases, including two over money laundering charges.

Police have filed charge sheets in seven of those cases.

Fuad is also accused in one of these seven cases filed over the vandalism of the house of the ruling party’s Faridpur unit President Subal Chandra Saha, said Pasha.

He said the former convener of Faridpur district Jubo League unit amassed a vast amount of illegal wealth by forming different gangs.

Fuad had used them to commit various crimes, including extortion, controlling the leasing of local markets, land grabbing and tender manipulation.

The police official said Fuad was also shown arrested in a 2015 murder case. “We will seek 10 days from the court for interrogation,” he added.

Faridpur SP Md Alimuzzaman also added that they managed to arrest Fuad, who went into hiding in June 2020 when Faridpur police began a special drive, based on a tip-off.

Fuad was removed from the post of convener of Faridpur district unit of the ruling party youth wing after being accused in the money laundering case.
