The High Court (HC) on Thursday ordered the trial court to dispose of the case against BNP Standing Committee member Gayeshwar Chandra Roy filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).
The HC bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice Khizir Hayat passed the order rejecting a petition filed by Gayeshwar Chandra in 2010 seeking cancelation of the case.
The court cleared the way for resuming trial in the case lifting the stay order on the trial proceedings.
Lawyer Nitai Roy Chowdhury appeared for the petitioner in court while Advocate M Khurshid Alam Khan for the ACC and Deputy Attorney General AKM Amin Uddin Manik for the state.
On January 5 in 2009, the ACC lodged a complaint with Ramna police station against Gayeshwar for amassing illegal wealth of Tk 2.86 crore and concealing the information.
ACC submitted a chargesheet to the court on July 5 of the same year.
Later in 2010, the High Court stayed the trail proceedings in the case in 2010 as Gayeshwar filed a petition to quash the case. At the same time, the court issued a rule in this regard.
