DIG Mizan braces for action, process underway: Home Minister
As suspended Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police Mizanur Rahman hit headlines one after another for wrong reasons, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan said this, reiterating that the process to take action against him is underway.
"No one is above the law. He (Mizan) has already been suspended," he said.
The Home Minister was talking to reporters after a function marking the signing of the annual performance agreement of Security Services Division under the home ministry.
Meanwhile, a committee has been formed by Police Headquarters to investigate the corruption of one of its Deputy Inspector General Mizanur Rahman.
Additional Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mainur Rahman Chwodhury will head the committee. It also includes Additional IGP Shahabuddin Koraishi and Superintendent of Police at Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) Mia Masud Hossain.
Recently, a private TV channel reported that Mizan gave Tk 40 lakh to Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Director Khandaker Enamul Bashir 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 He was withdrawn on January 9 last year following the allegation of threatening a female news presenter of a private television channel.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 up the 25-year-old woman in July 2017 and forcibly married her.
He also implicated her in a false case whereby she was arrested and remained in jail for three weeks.
