Destiny Group’s Didarul denied bail

The High Court on Sunday denied bail petition of Destiny Group Director Lt Col (retd) Didarul Alam in a money laundering case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).


A virtual bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukdar passed the order.


Attorney General Mahbubey Alam, Deputy Attorney General AKM Amin Uddin and Assistant Attorney General Kazi Shamsun Nahar stood for the state.


Advocate Md Khurshid Alam Khan and MA Aziz Khan represented the ACC while advocate Moinul Hossain stood for the petitioner.


The HC ordered a rehearing of the petition at a regular bench or at a virtual bench, said Amin Uddin.


Didarul’s bail plea was also denied earlier on Jun 8 and the bail petition was shifted to a normal bench of HC after vacation.


ACC filed the case at Kalabagan Police Station accusing 22 people on July 31, 2012.


According to the case statement, Destiny Multipurpose Cooperative Society Limited and Destiny Tree Plantation laundered Tk 1,178.61 crore from 2009 to 2013.
