Court Correspondent :
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) yesterday approved a charge sheet against 18 people in a graft case filed over FR Tower fire.
The national anti-graft agency approved the charge sheet at its regular meeting held at the Commission's headquarters in the capital, an ACC press release said.
On June 25, 2020, ACC Deputy Director Abu Bakar Siddique filed two cases against 23 people with the ACC's integrated district office Dhaka-1 to this end.
The charge sheet will soon be submitted before a Dhaka court against the 18 accused, including Md Hossain Imam Faruq, owner of FR Tower; Rupayan Housing chairman Liaquat Ali Khan Mukul; and managing director of Quasem Drycells Limited Tanveer-ul-Islam.
According to the case statements, Rajuk officials and others misused power to give an illegal revised-approval for floor 15 to 18 of FR Tower.
Later, the building was extended to 23 floors by Rupayan without Rajuk's approval. The building also did not have approval from the Civil Aviation Authority and other authorities concerned.
