Our Correspondent, Khagrachhari

A cognizance court yesterday ordered freezing of all the movable and immovable properties of former lawmaker from Khagrachhari Abdul Wadud Bhuiyan until disposal of the cases filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) and others.First Class Magistrate Ahmad Kabir gave the order under the Emergency Powers Act 2007, following an appeal by ACC Deputy Director Nurul Alam who filed a graft case on March 22 against the former lawmaker for illegally amassing wealth worth around Tk 6.15 core, court sources said.

Nurul Islam is also the Investigation Officer (IO) of the case.

The ACC official mentioned in the case that Wadud provided false information in his wealth statement submitted to the commission on February 25.

Following the court order, all of the eight categories of properties (both mobile and immobile) of Wadud have been brought under the government control, sources said.

Wadud faces at least five cases on different charges, said sources at Khagrachhari Police Station.

Earlier on February 22, police took control of Wadud Bhuiyan’s luxurious Khagrachhari residence ‘Baithak’ including its goods after completion of value assessment by a taskforce from Dhaka and Khagrachhari district administration.

The joint forces arrested Wadud, one of the 50 top corruption suspects on the ACC list, on February 4.

He is now in Comilla Central Jail.
