The investigation found that Malek owns three multi-storey buildings in Dhaka, 24 flats, a dairy firm within 15 kathas of land and some other properties, worth over Tk 100 crore.
During the preliminary interrogation, Malek admitted his involvement in doing transfer business for earning money… He also said land properties in capital’s Hatirpool and Turag areas are from his ancestral assets, Lt Colonel Ashique added.
