Confiscating properties of ex-OC Pradeep, wife ordered
Chattogram Metropolitan Session Judge Sheikh Ashfaque Rahman passed the order following a petition filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).
Emran Hossain, court inspector, said the court ordered to confiscate the assets Pradeep and his wife and appoint a receiver.
However, Chumki Karon, wife of Pradeep, remained absconding since Pradeep’s arrest in the Maj (Retd) Sinha Mohammad Rashed Khan murder case.
ACC sources said the anti-graft watchdog’s investigation against Pradeep started in 2018.
On April 20 last year, Pradeep and his wife were asked to submit their wealth statement and they submitted their wealth statements in June that year.
After a long investigation, the ACC reportedly found information that the couple acquired assets worth more than Tk 4 crore illegally.
Sinha was killed in police firing at Baharchhara police check-post on July 31. His elder sister Sharmin Shahriar Ferdous filed a case at Teknaf Senior Judicial Magistrate Court on August 5.
Ex-OC Pradeep surrendered the following day.
On June 27, a Cox’s Bazar court framed charges against 15 accused, including Pradeep Kumar Das, in the major (retd) Sinha MD Rashed Khan murder case.
