Court to deliver verdict against Bodi on Nov 2
A special court in Dhaka will deliver its verdict against Awami League MP Abdur Rahman Bodi on November 2 in a graft case.
The Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) filed the case over allegedly accumulating wealth beyond his known sources of income, reports UNB.
Judge of Dhaka Special Court-3 Abu Ahmed Jamadar on Wednesday passed the order and fixed the date after hearing arguments both from the prosecution and the defence.
Mahfuzur Rahman Likhon stood for Awami League MP while Mahmud Hossain represented the ACC.
On September 9, 2015, a Dhaka court framed charges against Bodi in the case.
On August 21, 2014, the ACC filed the case with Ramna Police Station accusing Bodi, an MP from Cox’s Bazar-4, of amassing illegal wealth.
The Dhaka court sent Bodi to jail in the case rejecting his bail petition on October 12, 2014.
Later, the High Court granted a six months’ anticipatory bail to the accused MP on October 27. –RH
