A Dhaka court on Thursday accepted the charge sheet against Sajjad Hossain alias Barkat and his brother Imtiaz Hasan alias Rubel, former president of Faridpur Press Club, and eight others in a money laundering case.
Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge Court Judge KM Emrul Kayes passed the order.
The court also issued arrest warrants against Khandaker Mohtesam Hossain Babar, AHM Fuad, Fahad bin Wazed Fahim alias Fahim, Kamrul Hasan David, Mohammad Ali Minar and Tariqul Islam alias Nasim, since they were shown as "fugitive accused" in the charge sheet.
Four accused in the case -- Barkat, Rubel, Khandakar Nazmul Islam Levi and Ashiqur Rahman Farhan -- are now in jail.
On March 3 last year, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) submitted the charge sheet against the ten accused over siphoning off Tk2,000 crore.
Uttam Kumar Biswas, assistant superintendent of police of the CID and also the investigation officer (IO), submitted the charge sheet before the court.
