Dhaka, July 16 (UNB) – The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Tuesday filed a case against suspended Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of police Mizanur Rahman and ACC director Khandaker Enamul Basir over Tk 40 lakh bribery scandal.
Sheikh Mohammad Fanafillah, ACC director and also the leader of the investigation team, filed the case with Dhaka-1 coordinated district office under the Anti-Corruption Commission, said ACC public relations officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya.
Earlier, the ACC gave its approval to file case against former DIG Mizan and its director Enamul Basir over the bribe scam.
A private TV channel reported recently that Mizan gave Tk 40 lakh to Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Director Khandaker Enamul Basir to get clean chit in a corruption case.
DIG Mizan was an additional commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP). He was withdrawn on January 9 last year following the allegation of threatening a female news presenter of a private television channel.
He had also reportedly married a woman forcibly and tortured her. Mizan allegedly picked the 25-year-old woman up in July, 2017 and then forcibly married her.
He had also implicated her in a false case whereby she was arrested and remained in jail for three weeks.
