DHAKA, May 26, 2024 (BSS) - A court here today ordered to attach more properties of former Inspector General of Police (IGP) Benazir Ahmed, his wife Jissan Mirza, and their three daughters.

The properties, which have been ordered to be attached are- properties including four flats in Dhaka, bought under 119 deeds, four 100 percent owned companies, 15 partially owned companies. The court also ordered to freeze four BO accounts.
