The Dhaka Senior Special Judge’s Court on Thursday set March 22 for submitting the probe report in the case against former minister and Bangladesh National Alliance president Nazmul Huda by Anti-Corruption Commission.

Dhaka senior special judge KM Imrul Kayes set the date, ACC general recording officer Abdus Salam said.

The ACC filed the case against former Bangladesh Nationalist Party leader Nazmul Huda on Wednesday on charge of filing a case against former Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha with false information.

ACC director Sayed Iqbal Hossain filed the case with its Dhaka-1 integrated district office.

On September 27, 2019, Nazmul Huda filed the case with Shahbagh police and later a Dhaka court asked the commission to investigate the matter.

Following the court direction, the commission assigned its director Sayed Iqbal to investigate the matter.

But the commission probe did not find such involvement of SK Sinha, Abdus Salam said.

After filing the case, Nazmul Huda told New Age that he filed the case as Justice SK Sinha in 2017, when he was the chief justice, demanded bribe from him.

‘He called me in his chamber and demanded the bribe. As declined to pay, he took some unconstitutional steps against me misusing his power as chief justice,’ Huda said.
