A comilla court on Tuesday issued an arrest warrant against newly elected mayor of Comilla City Corporation and BNP leader Monirul Haq Sakku in a corruption case filed by Anti Corruption Commission (ACC).
Judge Md Qamrul Hossain Molla of Dhaka Metropolitan Senior Special Judge's Court passed the order.
However, the court released Sakku’s wife Afroza Jasmin as charges brought against her was not proved.
In January 7, 2008, ACC filed a case against Sakku and his wife for hiding wealth information with Ramna police station.
In February 4, 2016, ACC assistant director Nurul Huda submitted chargesheet in court and appealed for withdrawing the case from his wife.
