On Monday, Chittagong Metropolitan Magistrate Rahmat Ali observed in court in the presence of the investigating officials that the chargesheet was 'flawed'.

The case is based on the confessional statement by Gholam Mostafa Sohel, an employee of Messrs Khan Jahan Ali Limited, Chittagong police’s Additional Deputy Commissioner Kazi Muktadir Ibne Minan told bdnews24.com.

"He has admitted the involvement of his company's owner Nur Mohammad in the trafficking of liquid cocaine. But the chargesheet recommends dropping the charges against Mohammed," he said.

He said the magistrate, on finding the chargesheet flawed, ordered a fresh probe by a RAB official not below the rank of an additional police superintendent.

Customs seized barrels full of liquid cocaine in a container on June 7 at the Chittagong port and sealed the consignment.

The consignment was booked as sunflower oil from Bolivia for Messrs Khan Jahan Ali Limited of Chittagong and loaded on the ship from Montevideo port in Uruguay.

The consignment reached Chittagong port via Singapore on May 12.

Later, the container was opened on court orders and samples were collected from 109 barrels in it.

When tests in Chittagong port did not point to cocaine, the samples were sent to the drug testing laboratories of Bangladesh Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (BCSIR) in Dhaka.

After two tests, the BCSIR founds evidence of liquid cocaine in the samples.

On Jun 28, police filed a case of narcotics trafficking against Gholam Mostafa and Nur Mohammad.

Later the court also ordered to level charges of smuggling against the two.

Investigating officer Mohammed Kamruzzaman, Joint Commissioner of Chittagong police, submitted the chargesheet in court on Nov 19.
