Staff Reporter :

A Jubo Leage (JL) leader of Sreepur upazila of Gazipur district on Sunday sent to the jail as he appeared in the court to give proxy of Mayor Anisur Rahman of Sreepur municipality in a case.

Sources said, Mayor Anisur Rahman is in Indonesia on a nine-day official tour. But he was supposed to appear at the court on September 9 in a case filed for allegedly misappropriating Tk 51.1 lakh between 2010 and 2013.

Some news portal on that day published news that Sreepur Mayor and two others are in jail. But the real scenario came to open when the people of the concern municipality area knew it.

Nur-e-Alam Molla, a Jubo League leader and Convener of Sreepur upazial Freedom Fighter Jubo Command, appeared in the court on Sunday to give proxy of Mayor Anisur Rahman. No one knew it.

But the Special Judge Mizanur Rahman did not grant bail to the Mayor in the case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) and ordered to send the Mayor to the jail. In this circumstances, Nur-e-Alam Molla had to go to the jail from the court as he appeared in the court instead of the Mayor and as no one knew it.

Mokhlesur Rahman, younger brother of the Mayor and also Assistant Head Master of Mauna Bohumukhi High School of Sreepur, said, “Mayor Anisur Rahman went to Indonesia to attend  a conference on rural development on Saturday night. He may come back to the country on September 18.”

Badruzzaman Badal, Secretary of Sreepur municipality, also confirmed the news of Mayor’s official tour to Indonesia.

Concern lawyer Syed Rezaur Rahman said, “I did not verify who came in the day of appearance.”

Nur-e-Alam Mollah on Monday said in the court that the Mayor requested him to give proxy in the court. But it was not verified whether his claim is true.

The Anti-Corruption Commission filed the case with the Sreepur Police Station on January 21 in 2015 against Mayor Anisur Rahman and two former officials of Sreepur Municipality in Gazipur for allegedly misappropriating Tk 51.1 lakh between 2010 and 2013.

An ACC probe found that Anisur and former Accountant Abdul Mannan realised Tk 43.75 lakh as municipality and holding tax but they did not deposit the money in the government exchequer, said an ACC official.


The two with former Secretary Mashrekul Alam also misappropriated Tk 7.35 lakh, which they collected from five markets as value added tax and income tax.
