On Monday, a Dhaka court also cleared police to take the man into remand for further question 

The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on Monday filed two cases against Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) driver Abdul Malek for his alleged involvement in trading illegal firearms and counterfeit currencies.

RAB’s Media and Legal Wing Director Lieutenant Colonel Ashique Billah told BSS that the RAB filed the cases at Turag police station under the Firearms Act and the Special Power Act.

The anti-crime elite force arrested Malek from Turag area early Sunday and recovered a foreign-made pistol, a magazine, five bullets, and counterfeit notes worth Tk1.50 lakh from his possession.

The RAB official said, being informed, they started investigation against Malek, a Class III employee of the DGHS, as he amazed huge wealth worth about crores of taka through illegal means.

The investigation found that Malek owns three multi-storey buildings in Dhaka, 24 flats, a dairy firm within 15 kathas of land and some other properties, worth over Tk100 crore.

“During the preliminary interrogation, Malek admitted his involvement in doing transfer business for earning money... He also said land properties in capital’s Hatirpool and Turag areas are from his ancestral assets,” Lt Colonel Ashique added.

It is known that Malek passed only Class VIII and joined the Savar Health Project as a driver in 1982.

Subsequently, he embezzled a huge amount of money and assets doing business of firearms and counterfeit notes.

On October 22 in 2019, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) summoned him for his alleged involvement in siphoning off several crores of taka abroad.

RAB has, however, handed over Malek to Turag police.

Meanwhile, a Dhaka court put him on seven-day remand for quizzing him more as police produced him before the court on Monday afternoon.
