ACC sues DIG Mizan
Staff Reporter :
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has filed a case against Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of police Mizanur Rahman for allegedly amassing wealth beyond known source of income.
The Commission also sued his wife Soheli Anar Ratna, brother Mahbubur Rahman and nephew Mahmudul Hasan on charge of their alleged involvement in accumulation of illegal wealth. Mahmudul Hasan is a Sub-Inspector of police.
ACC Director Manjur Morshed filed the case with the Commission against the people for accumulation of Tk 3.7 crore and hiding Tk 3.28 crore in Mizan's wealth statement, said ACC Public Relations Officer Pranab Kumar Bhatacharjee.
The Commission also asked Mizan to appear before its headquarters on July 1 where he will be interrogated over the alleged giving of Tk 40 lakh as bribe to ACC's suspended director Khandaka Enamul Basir.
On July 11, 2018, the ACC issued a notice to DIG Mizan and his wife Soheli asking them to submit their wealth statements.
On May 3 last year, the ACC interrogated the DIG in connection with the illegal wealth accumulation as the anti-graft body found his huge cash, apartments, cars and property, and fixed deposit accounts with a number of banks.
The Commission also found his involvement in money laundering.
In January 2018, Mizan was withdrawn from the DMP Headquarters and attached him to the Police Headquarters following allegations of marrying a woman forcefully and torturing her later.
Allegations have it that Mizan picked Morium Akter up and married her by force.
Later, Mizan instigated the arrest of Morium in a false case following a family feud.
