A Dhaka court on Thursday asked the police to confiscate all assets of BNP acting chairman Tarique Rahman and his wife Dr Zubaida Rahman in a graft case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).
Dhaka Metropolitan Senior Special Judge Md Asaduzzaman gave the order.
The court also asked the Cantonment Police Station officer-in-charge (OC) to submit a progress report on the implementation of the order by January 19, the date for the next hearing of the case.
On November 1, 2022, the same court issued arrest warrants against Tarique and Zubaida after accepting charges against them. It also asked the Cantonment Police Station OC to submit the progress report on the implementation of the arrest warrants by January 5.
According to the case statement, the ACC filed the case at Kafrul Police Station on September 26, 2007, against Tarique, his wife, and mother-in-law Syeda Iqbal Mand Banu for amassing wealth of around Tk4.82 crore beyond their known sources of income and for concealing information on wealth.
A charge sheet was submitted to the court against them in 2008.
