Partha was arrested by the ACC on July 28, 2019

A Dhaka court has set November 4 for holding a hearing on charge framing in a graft case filed against suspended Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Prisons Partha Gopal Bonik.

The hearing on the matter was fixed to be held on Thursday, and the accused was produced before the court for that. However, Judge Nazrul Islam of Dhaka Special Judge Court-10 reset the date, allowing a time plea of the defence.

Earlier on August 31, Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Qayesh accepted the charge-sheet filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on August 24 and transferred the case to this court for further proceedings.

Partha, who was working at Sylhet Central Jail, was arrested by the ACC on July 28, 2019, and recovered Tk80 lakh from his North Green Road flat.

“He did not declare the money in his income tax file, making us believe it was amassed illegally,” ACC director Mohammad Yousuf said on that day.

Partha during his arrest said the car he was using and was being kept at the parking space owned by him, actually belonged to his friend. Of the money, Partha said, Tk30 lakh was given to him by his mother-in-law and Tk50 lakh was earned by him during his years in service.

The anti-graft body filed the case on July 29, 2019, against Partha.
