Three lawmakers have sparked off controversy by allegedly committing money laundering, extortion and woman persecution.

They seem to be skeptical about the country’s fight against the corona pandemic and its socioeconomic impacts.

The trio are Mohammad Shahid Islam Papul, an MP from Laxmipur-2 constituency (independent), Naimur Rahman Durjoy, an MP from Manikganj-1 constituency (Awami League), and MP Enamul Haque of Rajshahi 4 constituency (Awami League).

Arrested in Kuwait, Papul has tarnished image of the country and its people. He is accused of laundering money and trafficking in human. He is arrested and placed on remand in the host country. Kuwait’s Public Prosecutor has approached the Central Bank to freeze the bank accounts of Lakshmipur lawmaker Md Shahid Islam alias Papul and his company, Kuwaiti media reported.

Papul, an independent member of parliament elected from Lakshmipur 2 constituency, was arrested by Kuwait authorities on June 7 in Kuwait City on charges of human trafficking and money laundering, reports Arab News.

Meanwhile, Durjoy is allegedly engaged in various crimes and corruption in his constituency causing great sufferings for the people.

Enamul Haque is facing allegation of persecution of woman. A woman claiming to be his second wife gave a facebook post recently putting the ruling party in awkward situation. She accused him of marrying her secretly and killing her foetus afterwards.
