OC Pradeep denied bail over graft case
A Chattogram court on Sunday denied bail to former Teknaf Police Station officer-in-charge Pradeep Kumar Das in a graft case filed in connection with amassing wealth from unknown sources.
Chattogram Metropolitan senior special judge Sheikh Ashfakur Rahman passed the order, said Kazi Anwar Ahmmed Lablu, lawyer of Anti-Corruption Commission.
A petition was also filed to confiscate his property.
Earlier on September 14, the court ordered to show OC Pradeep arrested in the graft case.
On August 23, ACC filed the case against Pradeep and his wife for amassing wealth worth Tk 4 crore from unknown sources.
Mohammad Riaz Uddin, deputy director of ACC, filed the case with the integrated court of Chattogram Divisional ACC office.
ACC sources said the anti-graft watchdog’s investigation against OC Pradeep started in 2018.
