Earlier in June 20, a Bogura court sent the former Awami Leaguer leader to jail after scrapping his bail in the case.According to the case statement, Latif Siddique misused his power and resorted to corruption while selling 2.38 acres of land controlled by the Bangladesh Jute Corporation in Adamdighi Upazila’s Dariapur. He sold the land to his acquaintance Jahanara Rashid, without floating a tender.
The market value of the land was Tk 6.4 million as per the government’s assessment but he sold it for Tk 2.3 million.
Aminul Islam, the assistant director of the ACC’s Bogura branch, started a case against Latif with Adamdighi police in December, 2017.
The charge sheet was filed by the police in February this year.
