Court orders to confiscate Tk 11cr assests of CMP ADC Kamrul, wife

  A Chattogram court on Tuesday (July 9) ordered confiscating the assets worth over Tk 11 crore belonging to Additional Deputy Police Commissioner (Crime) of Chattogram Metropolitan Police (CMP) Kamrul Hasan and his wife Saima Begum.

There are allegations that Kamrul Hasan has accumulated huge wealth getting indulged in bribes and extortion when he was serving at the CMP's prosecution wing.

Chattogram Metropolitan Sessions and Senior Special Judge Dr Zebunnessa passed the order following an appeal from the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Chattogram office.

The court directed the seizure of all movable and immovable assets, including property deeds, flats, and partial company shares, held in couple's names.

ACC public prosecutor Kazi Sanwar Ahmed Lavlu confirmed the matter.

The court ordered the confiscation of assets worth Tk 11,34,35,919 crore which are allegedly beyond the couple's known sources of income.

Kamrul Hasan, who previously served as the ADC (Prosecution) of CMP, resides with his wife at Bachamia Road, West Nasirabad in Chattogram city.

According to ACC sources, Kamrul joined the Bangladesh Police Department in 1989 as a sub-inspector (SI) and subsequently promoted to the post of ADC (Crime) at CMP.

Earlier, he served as officer-in-charge (OC) at different police stations in Hathazari and Banshkhali.

During the investigation, it was found that Kamrul Hasan had acquired assets worth Tk 13,96,31,911 crore, including movable assets worth Tk 12,72,92,695 crore and immovable assets worth Tk 1,23,39,216 crore.

In contrast, Kamrul's legitimate sources of income amounted to Tk 4,80,32,087 crore, revealing a disparity of Tk 9,86,28,065 crore. He was found to have accumulated assets worth Tk 97,322,044 beyond his known income sources.

Similarly, Saima Begum has assets worth Tk 2.53 crore, including immovable assets worth Tk 1.25 lakh and movable assets worth Tk 1.99 crore. Against the acquisition of this wealth, her legitimate and acceptable source of income was found to be Tk 40,14,433 lakh. The investigation found assets worth Tk 1,62,85,188 crore beyond her known sources of income.

The ACC, after its preliminary investigation, found sufficient evidence of assets disproportionate to the known sources of income and submitted an application to the court to seize these assets under Section 26(1) of the Anti-Corruption Commission Act, 2004, said the ACC lawyer.
