Son of a schoolteacher from Sonargaon upazila, Golam Kibria Shamim aka GK Shamim, who was arrested along with FDRs worth Tk 165 crore, around Tk 1.8 crore in cash and a large stash of dollars, became the ‘king’ of extortion and tender manipulation using political clout.

His father late Afsar Uddin was the headmaster of Harihardi Govt Primary School in the upazila.

Among three siblings, Shamim was the second. He was born at Dakkhinpara village under Sammandi union.

Locals said Shamim left the village on completion of his secondary level education.

Raiding his house and office in Niketan of the capital, Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) members arrested him on Friday on charges of extortion and tender manipulation.

Later, they recovered illegal firearms, huge ammunition, fixed deposit receipts (FDRs) worth Tk 165 crore, around Tk 1.8 crore in cash, large stash of dollars and foreign liquor from his office.

Shamim amassed huge illegal wealth using his political power.

He used to travel in a vehicle escorted by his seven armed bodyguards.

There were hooters in his vehicle. His bodyguards used to shout at commuters through loudspeakers to clear his way.
