A woman was found dead at a Gulshan apartment in Dhaka that police deem suicide
A Dhaka court has imposed a travel ban on Bashundhara Group Managing Director Sayem Sobhan Anvir after a case was filed accusing him of abetting the suicide of a woman.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Md Shahidul Islam passed the order on Tuesday after Gulshan police OC Abul Hassan, who is investigating officer of the case, moved petition to bar Sayem from leaving the country.
Md Alamgir Hossain, a general recording officer (GRO) at the CMM court, confirmed the development.
In the petition, the IO said there is a chance that Sayem might leave the country to avoid his arrest.
A message was conveyed to the Immigration police to take similar steps as well, said Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s Gulshan Division Deputy Commissioner (DC) Sudip Kumar Chakraborty.
Sayem is the son of Ahmed Akbar Sobhan, the chairman of Bashundhara, one of the largest business groups in Bangladesh.
