ACC to file case against Mizan over ill-gotten assets

Dhaka – Bangladesh’s anti-graft watchdog has decided to file a case against senior police officer, who came recently into the spotlight after offering bribe to a anti-graft official, for amassing ill gotten money.

The chairman of the Anti-Corruption Commission, Iqbal Mahmud, told reporters that the case might be filed on Monday. The ACC has cleared the file to go for legal action against the police officer, Mizanur Rahman, much known as DIG Mizan.  

The police officer was accused in amassing over 30 million taka beyond his known source of income.

Mizan has been facing a probe by ACC official over his alleged ill-gotten assets. He claimed in public that he had bribed an ACC investigation officer to report in his favour.

The police officer came under investigation in January last year after he was accused of forcibly marrying a woman, and Dhaka Metropolitan Police immediately withdrew him from his position.

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan in a recent reaction to the media said the officer will have to face justice.
