ACC filed the case against them on charge of amassing Tk2.31 crore illegal wealth and laundering Tk148 crore

The High Court ordered reserve seat lawmaker Selina Islam, wife of Bangladeshi parliamentarian Mohammad Shahid Islam Papul, and their daughter Wafa Islam to surrender before the court within 10 days in connection with graft case.

The High Court bench of Justice Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice Ahmed Sohail passed the order on Thursday in a virtual hearing.

Advocate Khurshid Alam represented the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) while Deputy Attorney General AKM Amin Uddin represented the state during the virtual session.

On the other hand, Advocate Abdul Baset Majumder and Advocate Saeed Ahmed Raja stood for the accused for the bail application.

Earlier on 26 November, disgraced independent MP Shahid Islam Papul's wife, daughter, and sister-in-law filed two petitions with the High Court for seeking anticipatory bail in a graft case filed over money laundering.

The bail petitioners are Papul's wife, Selina Islam, daughter Wafa Islam and sister-in-law Jesmin Prodhan.

Earlier on November 11, ACC Investigating Officer Salahuddin Ahmed filed the case on charge of amassing Tk2.31 crore illegal wealth and laundering Tk148 crore.

On June 6, Kuwait's Criminal Investigation Department arrested Shahid on charges of human trafficking, visa trading, and money laundering.
