On August 17, the High Court issued a rule asking the government to explain why Shahiful should not be granted bail in the cases.

The High Court on Monday ordered the authorities concerned to complete investigations into three graft cases filed over the purchase of furniture and other household items for the green city housing project under the Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant (RNPP) Project.

The bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice Ahmed Sohel also adjourned the bail petition of Engineer Shahiful Islam, an accused in the cases, for six months.

Advocate Syed Ahmed Reza stood for the petitioner while Advocate Khurshid Alam Khan stood for the ACC and Deputy Attorney General AKM Amin Uddin Manik represented the state.

On August 17, the High Court issued a rule asking the government to explain why Shahiful should not be granted bail in the cases.

An allegation of misappropriating Tk13.24 crore was raised while purchasing furniture and other household items for the green city housing project.

According to reports, each pillow was shown to have cost Tk5,957 and Tk760 was shown as the lifting charge for each pillow while an electric stove was shown to have been bought for Tk7,747 with an additional lifting charge of Tk6,650.

The purchase price of an electric kettle was reportedly Tk5,313 while its lifting cost was Tk2,945. Similarly, a room-cleaning machine, purchased at Tk12,018, was lifted spending Tk6,650.

Four separate cases were filed in this connection and engineer Shahidul Islam was accused in three cases.
