A court here on Thursday sent former Textiles and Jute Minister Abdul Latif Siddiqui to jail after rejecting his bail plea in a corruption case filed by Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).

Bogura District and Senior Special Judge Naresh Chandra Sarkar passed the order when Latif Siddiqui appeared before the court and sought bail.

Earlier on February 18, Assistant Director Md Aminul Islam of ACC submitted a charge sheet against him in the corruption case.

According to the case statement, Latif Siddiqui sold 2.38 acres of land of Bangladesh Jute Mill Corporation at Dariapur village in Adamdighi upazila to Begum Jahanara without any tenders for just Tk 23 lakh, which was just over a third of its market value, said to have been Tk 64 lakh at the time.

Later, a corruption case was filed with Adamdighi Police Station accusing Siddiqui and Jahanara.

Siddiqui's offense was to sell the government-owned land and incurring a loss of Tk 40.70 lakh (the difference between the selling price and its market value) to the public exchequer.
