Online desk ; A Dhaka court on Sunday fixed February 24 for filing the investigation report in a case against seven people, including former Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) mayor Sayeed Khokon, on charges of embezzling Tk 34.89 crore.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shahidul Islam passed the order as the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) could not submit the report on the day.
On December 29, 202, Fulbaria City Super Market president Delwar Hossain filed the case in the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Asheque Imam. The next day, the PBI was directed to investigate the matter and submit a report by January 31.
The other accused in the case are former chief revenue officer of DSCC Yusuf Ali Sarker, former deputy assistant engineer Majed, Kamrul Hasan, Helena Akter, Atiqur Rahman and Walid.
According to the case statement, accused Sayeed Khokon, Yusuf Ali Sarker and Majed swindled some small businessmen out of Tk 34,89,70,575 under the pretext of allotting shops at Fulbaria Supermarket-2. They planned to build illegal extension Blocks A, B and C beside Fulbaria City Super Market-2 and announced allotment of shops.
Other accused in the case— Kamrul , Helena, Atiqur and Walid—forced traders to take allotment of shops in the unplanned part and received hefty sums of money for booking shops without giving any receipt or document.
According to the complaint, the victims deposited more than Tk 34.89 crore in the account of accused Khokon at different times.
DSCC mayor Fazle Noor Taposh, as part of a campaign to evict illegal establishments in the area under his jurisdiction, carried out an eviction drive and demolished the installations in A, B, C extension blocks of Fulbaria City Super Market-2.
Only then the plaintiff and other victims came to know about the forgery and embezzlement of the ex DSCC Mayor and his accomplices, says the case statement.
