Suspended DIG prisons Bazlur Rashid denied bail

The High Court today rejected a bail petition of suspended Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Prisons Bazlur Rashid in a case against him on charge of amassing Tk 3.08 crore beyond known source of income.

The HC bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder passed the order considering the bail petition was not properly moved.

The court passed the rejection order after holding a virtual hearing on the petition.

Advocate Mesbahul told The Daily Star that his client cannot get released from jail following the High Court's order.

He said his client is yet to give him instruction on further proceedings.

Advocate Khurshid Alarm Khan represented the Anti-Corruption Commission during the virtual hearing.                             

On January 29 this year, a division HC bench led by Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder refused to grant bail to Bazlur Rashid in the same case.

The bench had also directed the ACC to finish probe into the charges against him within six months.

ACC arrested Bazlur Rashid in the case -- filed with ACC's Integrated District Office -- and showed him arrested in the case on October 20 last year.

The following day, the home ministry suspended him from service.

According to the case statement, Bazlur signed a contract with a real estate company in 2018 to buy a flat in the capital's Siddeshwari Road area at Tk 3.09 crore.
