A court here today accepted a charge-sheet filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) in a case against former Transport Minister Nazmul Huda for lodging a fake case against former Chief Justice Surendra Kumar (SK) Sinha.

Dhaka Senior Special Judge KM Imrul Qayesh passed the order and transferred the case to Dhaka Special Judge Court-9 for further proceedings. The court also set December 13 for holding a hearing on the charge framing.

Accused Nazmul Huda today surrendered before the court and pleaded for bail. After holding a hearing on the matter, the court allowed him bail till December 13.

ACC director Md Benjir Ahammed filed the charge-sheet recently before Dhaka Special Judge Court, ACC general registration officer Zulfikar Ali told BSS.

The anti-graft body approved the charge-sheet on October 7.

Nazmul Huda filed the case against the former Chief Justice SK Sinha with Shahbagh Police Station on September 27, 2018, for demanding bribe from him and changing the judgement 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.
