A Dhaka court today (Monday) placed Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) driver Abdul Malek alias Badal on a 14-day remand in two cases lodged over recovery of illegal weapon and fake notes.
Police today produced the accused before the court and pleaded to place him on total 14-day remand in the two cases lodged with Turag Police Station. Malek’s lawyer however, pleaded to cancel the remand plea and grant him bail in the two cases.
After hearing both the sides, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shahidul Islam placed Malek on a 14-day remand.
A team of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on September 20 arrested Malek for his involvement in businesses of illegal arms, fake notes and other illegal activities. RAB at the time recovered a foreign-made pistol, one magazine, five bullets, fake notes of Taka 1.5 lakh, a laptop and a mobile phone from his possession.
Malek owns two luxurious buildings with 24 flats in Turag area, 12 katha plot and a 10 storied under construction building in Hatirpul area.
Though he is only a driver, but Malek is accused of meddling in transferring, postings and promotions of doctors, amassing huge wealth in this way, reports BSS.
