A Dhaka court has summoned former shipping minister Shajahan Khan in a defamation case filed by Nirapad Sarak Chai founder Ilias Kanchan.

According to the case statement, on December 8 last year, Shajahan Khan at a programme in Rupganj made offensive and abusive remarks about Ilias Kanchan.

“I’d disclose it to the people how Ilias Kanchan gets money and for what purpose, how much money he takes for himself and how much for his son and daughter-in-law,” Shajahan, also transport workers’ leader, said.
