Arrest warrant issued against Tareq Zubaida in graft case

news desk: A Dhaka court has issued arrest warrants against BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman and his wife Dr Zubaida Rahman in a graft case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).

Judge Md Asaduzzaman of Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge Court on Tuesday issued the warrants after accepting charge sheets against them, reports BSS.

The court also fixed January 5 to submit the report on execution of the arrest warrants against them.

On September 26 in 2007, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed the case against Tarique Rahman, his wife Zubaida Rahman and mother-in-law Iqbal-Mand Banu for amassing illegal wealth of Taka 4.81 crore and concealing information about the assets.

The anti-graft body filed the charge-sheet in 2008. After that, Zubaida filed a petition with the High Court pleading to quash the proceedings of the case.

The High Court in the same year stayed the proceedings of the case, which was later upheld by the Appellate Division.
