Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Mizanur RahmanThe Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has filed a case against Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Mizanur Rahman and three of his family members for amassing illegal wealth of TK 32.8 million.
ACC Chairman Iqbal Mahmood confirmed the matter on Monday (Jun 24).
Others accused in the case include DIG Mizan’s wife Sohelia Anar Ratna, his younger brother Mahbubur Rahman Swapan and nephew police sub-inspector Mahmudul Hasan.
Last year, the ACC launched a probe into the wealth of DIG Mizan, after he was relieved of duties following allegations of torturing a woman.
On Jun 10, the ACC suspended the-then investigator, its director Khandaker Enamul Basir, for leaking the probe report to DIG Mizan.
Three days later, ACC Director Manzur Morshed was appointed to conduct the probe.
On Jun 20, a Dhaka court ordered to confiscate assets, and freeze bank accounts of DIG Mizan.
