The High Court (HC) on Wednesday refused to grant bail to suspended deputy inspector general (DIG) of prisons in Sylhet division, Partha Gopal Banik, in a case filed over recovery of Tk 8.0 million from his residence in the capital.
The HC bench of Justice Obaidul Hassan passed the order after holding virtual hearing on the bail petition filed by Partha.
The court, however, suggested that the bail application be placed in a regular High Court bench when it will resume proceedings.
Barrister Shafiq Ahmed, Barrister Mahbub Shafiq and Barrister Sanjid Siddiqee took part in the hearing on behalf of Partha Gopal Banik while Advocate Khurshid Alam Kahn appeared for the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).
Earlier on October 6, 2020, another HC bench refused to grant him bail.
