Court Correspondent :
The Senior Special Judges' Court of Dhaka yesterday sent Khandaker Enamul Basir, suspended Director of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), to the jail, rejecting his bail petition in the case filed in connection with the transaction of Tk four million as bribe. .
Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of the court passed the order when  the ACC produced him in the court with appeal to send him to the jail.
Basir was arrested from the capital's Mirpur area by a team of ACC officials led by Director Sheikh Fanafillah Bawas on Monday on the charge of bribe taking. He was accused in the case on charge of taking Tk four million as bribe from suspended DIG Mizanur Rahman, said ACC Public Relations Officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya.
On July 16, ACC Director Fanafillah filed the case with the ACC's Dhaka District Coordination Office-1 under the Anti-money Laundering Act.
Following a TV news, in which DIG Mizan alleged that Enamul took bribe from him for clearing him of a graft allegation, the ACC formed a three-member investigation committee headed by Fanafillah and suspended Enamul.
In May last year, the ACC launched an enquiry into the wealth of Mizan, former DIG of Dhaka Metropolitan Police. Later, the ACC tasked Enamul about the enquiry while Mizan was arrested earlier.
