Dhaka, Sept 6 (UNB) - Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) will closely monitor the legal action taken by the Rajuk as the Commission has found irregularities in building construction in the city.
A five-member team of ACC conducted a drive in the New Baily road area on September 5 as they were informed through hotline 106 about the irregularities in obeying building code.
