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.

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