The Crime Investigation Department (CID) of Police has prepared a charge sheet in the money laundering case filed against expelled Jubo League leader Gulam Kibria (GK) Shamim.
The charge sheet will be submitted at court once the COVID-19 situation becomes normal.
The names of Shamim's family members, relatives and officers of GK Builders have also been included in the charge sheet.
Additional Superintendent of Police (CID) Farooq Hossain told The Business Standard that the investigation into the money laundering case against GK Shamim has already been completed.
GK Shamim's 194 bank accounts, containing Tk324.56 crore in total, have already been frozen. The accounts had more than Tk3,000 crore in transactions. Details about the sources of money have already been obtained, CID officials said.
CID officials added that they have not found evidence that GK Shamim siphoned off funds abroad. He has Fixed Deposit Receipt (FDR) of Tk 165.29crore. He also had Tk1.81 crore in cash and currencies from different countries.
They found that GK Shamim had 58 kathas of land in total in Sabujbagh, Basabo, Niketan, Mohammadpur and Khilkhet in Dhaka.
GK Shamim used to control most of the contracts of the Public Works Department, and by applying his political power, he used to win most of the contracts, sources said.
On September 20 last year, the RAB during the anti-casino drive, arrested GK Shamim on charges of extortion and tender manipulation, and confiscated Tk1.81 crore in cash. His bodyguards were also arrested.
That same day RAB raided his house and office in the city's Niketan area and seized eight firearms, a huge amount of ammunition, bank fixed deposits worth Tk 165 crore, around Tk 1.8 crore in cash, a large stash of US and Singaporean dollars and some foreign alcohol.
The elite force filed three cases – one under the narcotics control, one under money-laundering prevention and other under the arms acts – against Shamim at the Gulshan Police Station on September 21.
The Anti-Corruption Commission also filed a case against Shamim and his mother for amassing wealth worth Tk297.08 crore beyond their known sources of income.
On October 27, 2019, the RAB submitted a charge sheet against former Jubo League leader Golam Kibria Shamim alias GK Shamim and seven of his bodyguards in a case filed under the Arms Act.
The CID filed a charge sheet against six people including, expelled organisational secretary Khaled Mahmud Bhuiyan in a money laundering case in February.
