A court here on Thursday placed Akbar Hossain Sumon, Treasurer of Destiny Multi-purpose Cooperative Society, on a weeklong remand in connection with two money laundering cases.
Deputy Director of Anticorruption Commission Mozahar Ali Sarder, also investigation officer of the case, produced him before the court of Metropolitan Magistrate Jainab Begum with a 10-day remand prayer, but the court granted for seven days of remand.
Earlier on March 1, Sumon appeared before the court with a bail petition. The court rejected his bail prayer and sent him to jail hajat.
The ACC on July 31 last year filed two money-laundering cases against 22 Destiny officials, including its Chairman Lt. General (retd) M Harunur Rashid and Managing Director Rafiqul Amin, with the cityâ€™s Kalabagan Police Station on charge of misappropriating investorsâ€™ money worth about Tk 3,500 crore in the name of MLM business and tree plantation project and laundering the money abroad.
Of the accused, Rafiqul Amin, Destiny official Mohammad Hossain and another Destiny official Didarul Alam are now in custody, while M Harunur Rashid secured bail from the High Court earlier. A total of 17 accused in the cases remained absconding.S
