A Dhaka court on Thursday (Sep 15) fixed October 3 for the testimony in a case against former communications minister Nazmul Huda lodged by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) over filing fake case against former Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha.
Today was fixed for recording deposition in the case. As the judgment of the appeal challenging the validity of the ACC case was pending in the Appellate Division, the defence pleaded for time.
Accepting the time plea, Judge Sheikh Hafizur Rahman of Special Judge Court-9 fixed the date afresh.
Nazmul Huda filed a case against former Chief Justice SK Sinha with Shahbagh Police Station on September 27 in 2018, for allegedly demanding bribe from him and changing the judgment of a graft case which had already been disposed of.
The ACC after probing the case for one and a half years, found the allegations baseless and false, and filed the case against Nazmul Huda on February 20, 2020.
The ACC submitted charge sheet against Huda at Dhaka Senior Special Judge court on 7 October in 2021. Charges were framed against him on 6 April this year.
