The Dhaka senior special judge’s court on Sunday remanded expelled Juba League leader Ismail Hossain Chowdhury Samrat in custody for six days for interrogation on charge of amassing illegal wealth of Tk 2.94 crore.

The judge, Imrul Kayes, passed the order in a case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission.

The same court remanded former Dhaka south unit Juba League vice-president Enamul Haque Arman in custody for six days for interrogation in a case of illegal wealth.

On November 12, 2019, the commission filed the two cases against Samrat and his associate Enamul.

A Dhaka court on October 15, 2019, placed Samrat on a 10-day remand in two cases – one under narcotics control act and the other under arms act.

On November 6, the Rapid Action Battalion said that they arrested the then pro-Awami League youth organisation Juba League’s Dhaka south city unit president Samrat and Enamul at Chuddagram in Cumilla.

Samrat was jailed by a battalion executive magistrate for six months for violating the wildlife protection law and Ranmul for the same period for violating the anti-narcotic law.
