Nur Hossain, the prime accused in the sensational seven-murder case in Narayanganj, and his wife have been sued in two different cases for amassing illegal property and concealing information to the Anti-corruption commission.
The wife, Roma Hossain, was arrested from Shimrail of Narayanganj after the cases were filed in the morning, , reports a Narayanganj correspondent quoting Sharafatullah, Officer-in-charge of Shiddhirganj police station.
In the case filed by ACC Deputy Director Julfikar Ali, Roma amassed illegal property worth Tk 5.3 crore and concealing information about Tk 3.62 crore, Bangla daily Prothom Alo reports.
On the other hand, Nur Hossain has been made accused of amassing illegal property worth Tk 5 crore, the daily added.
Nur is an accused in almost a dozen cases, including the one filed over the killing of seven people — Narayanganj City Corporation ward councillor Nazrul Islam, his driver and three associates, and senior lawyer Chandan Sarkar and his driver.
The seven were abducted allegedly by some Rapid Action Battalion men from Dhaka-Narayanganj Link Road on April 27 last year.
Nur, who too was a ward councillor of Narayanganj city back then, allegedly bribed the Rab men for murdering Nazrul with whom he reportedly had a longstanding political feud. Lawyer Chandan and his driver were killed as they happened to witness the Rab men abducting Nazrul and his associates.
Immediately after the murders, Nur fled to India. However, he was arrested in Kolkata in June and charged with trespass and possession of an illegal firearm.
