Mizan, Basir indicted for bribery

Dhaka – Two senior government officials, suspended from the services for their alleged misdeeds, were indicted in a bribery case, officials said on Sunday.

A Dhaka court passed the order accepting the charges pressed by the investigators against Mizanur Rahman, a suspended deputy inspector general (DIG) of police, and Khandaker Enamul Basir, director of Anti-Corruption Commission who was also suspended.

Senior Special Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of Dhaka fixed March 3 to begin the trial into the bribery case at the Special Judge Court-4 of Dhaka.

The case was filed by anti-corruption commission on July 16 after Mizan said he bribed the ACC director worth about 4 million taka asking for submitting an investigation report in favour of him.

Basir initially turned down the accusation that he took the bribe. But the ACC investigators submitted report to the court citing that he might have involved in the bribery scam.

The same court accepted charges against Mizan, his wife Sohelia Anar Ratna, and two police sub-inspectors Mahbubur Rahman and Mahmudul Hasan in another corruption case.

The court issued an arrest warrant for Sohelia and Mahbubur as they appeared to be fugitives in the case.
