HC rejects Rana Plaza owner’s bail plea

The High Court on Wednesday rejected the bail petition filed by Rana Plaza owner Sohel Rana for not submitting wealth statement to the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).

In the case, a lower court sentenced Sohel Rana to three years in prison for not submitting his wealth statement to the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).

The single HC bench of Justice Abu Bakar Siddiquee, accepted his appeal petition for hearing that was filed against three years’ imprisonment in the corruption case.

On August 29, a court here sentenced Rana Plaza owner Sohel Rana to three years’ imprisonment in a case filed for not submitting wealth statement to the ACC.

The court also fined Rana Tk 50,000, in default, he will have to serve three months more in jail.

After the collapse of Rana Plaza building in 2013 deputy director of ACC Md Mahbubul Alam filed the case with Ramna Police Station on May 20 in 2015.

At least 1,129 people, mostly garment workers, were killed and some 2,515 others injured as Rana Plaza came down crushing in Savar on the outskirts of the capital on April 24, 2013.
