The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected the bail petition of expelled Sramik League leader Tufan Sarkar of Bogra in a case filed by ACC.

A full bench of the Appellate Division led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain passed the order.

Advocate Sharif Uddin Chakladar stood for Tufan while Advocate Khurshid Alam Khan represented theAnti-Corruption Commission (ACC).

On March 1, the High Court rejected the bail petition of Tufan in a case filed by ACC and said he will not be able to file a bail petition in any court.

Later, Tufan Sarkar filed a petition with the Appellate Division challenging the HC order.

The case was filed against Tufan over amassing wealth and concealing wealth information.

Tufan has no source of income and he in the tax return submitted a return of Tk 1.60 crore.

He also refrained from giving the right information to ACC about his wealth.

On December 31, 2018, ACC Deputy Director Mohammad Aminul Islam filed a case with Bogura Sadar police station.

Tufan is in prison since 2017 in a case filed over the rape and torture of a schoolgirl and her mother.

On June 22, 2020, the High Court rejected the bail petition of Tufan Sarkar in the case filed over the rape and torture of a schoolgirl and her mother.

Tufan took the girl to his house at Badurtala in the district town promising to arrange her admission into a local college and raped her there on July 17, in 2017.

When Tufan's wife Asha and her elder sister Rumki came to know about the incident, they along with some associates picked up the girl and her mother from their house.

They allegedly beat up the girl and her mother with sticks and cut off their hair.

At one stage, the perpetrators got their heads shaved done by a barber on July 28, 2017.

Later, two cases were filed in this connection on July 29 in the same year.
