A Dhaka court yesterday (Monday) fixed October 18 for further hearing on charge hearing against BNP Standing Committee member Dr Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain in a case filed for laundering Tk 9.55 crore to the United Kingdom.
Judge Ataur Rahman of the Special Judge Court-1 of Dhaka passed the order in presence of Dr Mosharraf. He was brought to the court on the occasion.
On February 6, last year, Anti Corruption Commission director Nasim Anwar had lodged the case with Ramna Model Police Station in the capital. Later, on August 14, of that year, complainant and also the Investigation Officer of the case Nasim submitted the charge sheet to the court.
According to the charge sheet, Mosharraf and his wife Bilkis Akhter Hossain deposited the alleged laundered amount to their joint account No. 108492 with Lloyds TSB Offshore Private Banking, St Peterport, UK. However, Bilkis Akhter was not included in the charge sheet as her involvement was not found during the investigation, said a source at the ACC.
