A Metropolitan Sessions Judge’s court set November 22 for holding a hearing on charge framing in a narcotics case against Samrat and his accomplice

A court here On Wednesday issued a production warrant and ordered the prison authorities to produce detained expelled president of Dhaka Metropolitan South Jubo League, Ismail Hossain Chowdhury Samrat before it on October 25 in a graft case.

Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Qayesh passed the order as the jail authorities failed to produce the accused before it on Wednesday, making the court defer the date for holding the hearing on accepting the charge sheet, reports BSS. 

Meanwhile, Judge Tehsin Iftekhar of Dhaka 7th Additional Metropolitan Sessions Judge set November 22 for holding a hearing on charge framing in a narcotics case against Samrat and his accomplice and former Dhaka South unit Jubo League vice-president Enamul Haque Arman.

Samrat, the former president of Jubo League's Dhaka South unit, came under the spotlight last year when the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) busted illegal gambling businesses at several sports clubs in Dhaka. 

He subsequently went into hiding before being arrested with Arman in Comilla on October 6 that year.

He was expelled from the youth front of the ruling Awami League following his arrest.

RAB later conducted a raid on Samrat's office in Kakrail's Bhuiyan Trade Centre with him in tow.

They subsequently recovered a foreign pistol, 1,160 yaba tablets, 19 bottles of foreign liquor, two kangaroo hides, and 'electrical torture equipment.'

Two cases were also filed against him under the Narcotics Control Act and Arms Act at Ramna police station.

A RAB mobile court also sentenced Samrat and Arman to six months each in prison for wildlife law violations and drunkenness respectively.

The Anti-Corruption Commission also filed two cases against them for amassing wealth through illegal means.
