Ctg Arms Haul Charge Sheet
Former state minister for home Lutfozzaman Babar had ordered the CID to submit the charge sheets in the 10-truck arms haul cases without implicating NSI officials, ex-DIG of CID Farrukh Ahmad told a Chittagong court yesterday. “According to the order of Lutfozzaman Babar and with consent from former home secretary Omar Faruq, the charge sheets were submitted without disclosing the involvement of NSI officials in the smuggling of arms and ammunition,” Farrukh said in his deposition as a prosecution witness in two cases in this connection. Farrukh also implicated several former National Security Intelligence (NSI) officials including its former director general Brig Gen (retd) Abdur Rahim, deputy director Major (retd) Liakat Hossain and field officer Akbar Hossain and former director of Directorate General of Forces Intelligence (DGFI) Brig Gen (retd) Rezzakul Haider Chowdhury in the offence. Law enforcers seized 10 truckloads of arms and explosive at the jetty of Chittagong Urea Fertiliser Limited in the wee hours of April 2 in 2004. -thedailystar.net, July 4, 2012.

HC stays suspension order of 6 UP chairmen
The High Court (HC) on Wednesday stayed for three months a government order that had suspended six union parishad (UP) chairmen of Bishwanath upazila in Sylhet.
The court also issued six separate rules upon the government to explain why the suspension of the UP chairmen should not be declared illegal.
A vacation bench of the HC comprising Justice Hasan Foez Siddique and Justice AKM Shahidul Haque came up with the order and rules after holding hearing on six separate petitions filed by the suspended chairmen challenging the legality of the government decision of suspending them from their offices. The suspended UP chairmen are Mohammad Lilu Miah of Alamkari Union, Nizam Uddin Siddique of Khajanthi Union, Md Jalal Uddin of Bishwanath Union, Kabir Hossain Miah of Lamakazi Union, Md Tahid Miah of Dewkolosh Union and Md Abbas Ali of Dowlatpur Union. -thedailystar.net, July 4, 2012.
