The Anti Corruption Commission has summoned one of its director and a top police official for questioning over a Tk 4 million bribe allegation.
ACC Director Enamul Basir, now sacked, and Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Mizanur Rahman have been ordered to present its headquarters in the capital’s Segunbagicha on Jul 1, ACC Chairman Iqbal Mahmood told the media on Monday (Jun 24).
Earlier in the day, the graft watchdog filed a case against DIG Mizan and three of his family members for amassing the illegal wealth of TK 32.8 million.
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.
DIG Mizan alleged that Basir took Tk 4 million in bribe in exchange of probe report.
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.
