The Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Court of Dhaka on Monday exempted Erfan Salim, son of Awami League leader and MP Haji Mohammad Salim from a drug case. Metropolitan Magistrate Shahinur Rahman of the CMM Court passed the order on Monday after a short hearing on the probe report. Earlier, the court accepted the probe report exempting Erfan.
Chawkbazar Police Station police submitted the probe reports on arms and drug cases to the CMM Court of Dhaka on January 5.
In the final report, police said they did not find any proof to prove the charges against Erfan in the two cases filed under the Narcotics Control and Arms Acts. The IO also appealed to the court to discharge Erfan from the cases.
