Suspended AL leader Enamul, his brother denied HC bail in graft cases



The High Court today refused to grant bail to suspended Gendaria Awami league leaders Enamul Huq Enu and his brother Rupam Bhuiyan in two corruption cases involving Tk 36 crore.

The court, however, issued two separate rules asking the Anti-Corruption Commission and government to explain in two weeks why Enamul and Rupam should not be granted bail in the cases.

The HC bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice Ahmed Sohel delivered the rule following two separate petitions filed by Enamul and Rupam seeking bail in the cases.

Deputy Attorney General AKM Amin Uddin Manik told The Daily Star that the two cannot get release from jail following the order.

He said the ACC filed the two cases with Dhaka office on October 23 last year on charges of amassing wealth worth Tk 36 crore beyond known sources of income.

Enamul is accused of amassing illegal wealth worth Tk 21.89 crore while Rupam is accused of amassing illegal wealth worth more than Tk 14 crore, according to the case statements.

Earlier on September 24, 2019 law enforcers recovered huge amounts of cash and gold ornaments from their residences in Dhaka’s Wari area.

Police arrested them on January 13 this year from Keraniganj area in connection with the cases, DAG Amin Uddin added.

Lawyer Khurshud Alam Khan represented the ACC while lawyer Syed Mamun Mahbub appeared for Enamul and Rupam during their bail petition hearing at the HC.
