A Dhaka court has fixed October 12 to deliver the verdict in a corruption case against former state minister for home Lutfozzaman Babar.

Judge Mohammad Shahidul Islam of Special Judges' Court 7 on Monday set the date after hearing the closing argument of prosecution and defence.

The court on September 21 had read out the charges levelled against Babar and testimonies of the prosecution witnesses. The court after that asked Babar whether he wanted to plead guilty or not.

In reply, Babar, also a BNP leader, pleaded not guilty and demanded justice from the court.

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed the case against Babar with Ramna police on January 13, 2008, accusing him of amassing around Tk7.05 crore illegally.

Babar was arrested from his Gulshan residence on May 28, 2007. He was sentenced to 17 years of imprisonment in an arms case on October 30, 2007.

ACC Deputy Assistant Director Rupok Kumar Saha submitted the charge sheet in the graft case on July 16, 2008.

A court on August 12 the same year had indicted Babar in this case.

He was also sentenced to death in the 10-truck arms haul and August 21 grenade attack cases.

In 2018, a Speedy Trial Tribunal sentenced 19 people, including Babar, to death in a case filed over the August 21 grenade attack on an Awami League rally in the capital in 2004.
