The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court has cancelled the High Court order that acquitted former minister Nazmul Huda and his wife in a bribery case.
A four-member bench headed by Justice SK Sinha passed the order on Monday afternoon, after hearing the leave-to-appeal petitions filed by Anti-Corruption Commission and the state.
The apex court also ordered the rehearing of the case in the High Court.
On March 20, 2011, the High Court acquitted Nazmul Huda and Sigma Huda of the charge in a bribery case.
Nazmul Huda was jailed for seven years and his wife Sigma Huda for three years in Tk 2.4 crore bribery case.
The Anticorruption Commission’s deputy director Md Shafiqul Islam filed the case against Huda and his wife with Dhanmondi police station on March 21, 2007.
