According the case statement, Shahidul started submission of tax return from 1987-88. In his tax return, Shahidul did not mention his immovable properties although his wife Shamima Alam, who is a housewife, had a flat worth over Tk 1.47 crore at Gulshan in the capital.

The flat was brought by paying Tk 24,42,495 from Shahidul’s bank account.
However, Shahidul in his tax return showed the immovable properties of only Tk 26,52,359.
