The state filed an appeal seeking cancellation of the bail granted to GK Shamim
The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court has asked authorities concerned to submit all the documents related to the order granting bail to expelled Jubo League leader Golam Kibria Shamim alias GK Shamim in two cases.
The full bench of the Appellate Division led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain issued the order today when the state filed an appeal seeking cancellation of the bail granted to GK Shamim.
The hearing on the plea will be held in the afternoon.
Earlier on Saturday several media outlets reported saying the High Court granted bail to GK Shamim, who arrested during the anti-casino drive, in arms and drugs cases.
Though GK Shamim was granted bail a month ago, the incident came to light on Saturday.
According to newspaper report, two separate benches of High Court granted him six months bail in arms case on February 6 and one year bail in a drugs case on February 4.
He moved the High Court after a special tribunal rejected his bail plea on November 27.
GK Shamim, who was known as an influential contractor of Sabujbagh, Basabo and Motijheel areas of the capital, was arrested on September 20 last year.
Rapid Action Battalion members seized illegal firearms and Fixed Deposit Receipts worth Tk165 crore, Tk 1.8 crore in cash and foreign currencies from his house and office at Niketan.
The elite force filed three cases – one under narcotics control, one under money-laundering prevention and other under arms acts – against Shamim with Gulshan Police Station on September 21.
