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.
