Cantonment police asked to arrest Falu by March 24 over siphoning money

A Dhaka court today directed the officer-in-charge (OC) of Cantonment Police Station to implement — by March 24 — the order for arresting former BNP lawmaker Mosaddek Ali Falu in a case filed for siphoning Tk 183.92 crore to Dubai.

Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of the Senior Special Judge’s Court of Dhaka passed the order after the OC of Banani Police Station submitted a report, saying the address mentioned in the FIR and charge sheet is under Cantonment Police Station.

On December 13 last year, the same court accepted the charges against Falu and two others and issued arrest warrant against Falu as he was shown fugitive in the charge sheet.

The judge also directed the OC of Banani Police Station to submit by today the report on execution of the arrest warrant against Falu.

The two others are SAK Ikramuzzaman, managing director of RAK Ceramics and Rakhen Development Company Ltd, and Syed AK Anwaruzzaman, director of Star Ceramics Private Ltd.

Both of them had earlier secured bail from the trial court.

ACC Deputy Director Md Gulshan Anowar Prodhan, also the investigation officer of the case, on September 30 last year submitted the charge sheet to the Senior Special Judge’s Court of Dhaka.

Falu, a former advisory council member of BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, was shown “fugitive” in the charge sheet as he did not obtain bail from any court like the other two.

On May 13 of 2019, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed the case with Uttara Paschim Police Station against Falu and three others under the Money Laundering Act for siphoning Tk 183.92 crore to Dubai.
