The Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge’s Court on Monday permitted the Criminal Investigation Department to freeze 194 bank accounts of controversial contractor Golam Kibria Shamim in response to a petition filed in connection with a money laundering case.

Judge KM Imrul Kayes passed the order after hearing the petition, which was submitted by CID senior assistant superintendent of police Abu Sayeed, said additional public prosecutor Tapas Kumar Pal.

GK Shamim was arrested by Rapid Action Battalion during a raid in the capital’s Niketan area on September 20, 2019.

During the raid, a RAB seized Tk 1.80 crore from his house and fixed deposit receipts worth Tk 165 crore from his office in the area.

Shamim is also known as an influential contractor in the capital’s Sabujbagh, Bashabo and Motijheel areas.
