The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) is interrogating GK Builders proprietor Golam Kibria Shamim alias GK Shamim and Dhaka South Jubo League expelled organizational secretary Khaled Mahmud in remand over illegal wealth acquisition.

A team led by Syed Iqbal Hossain, the director of the agency, has been interrogating them at the ACC headquarters on Tuesday morning.

On the seven-day remand, GK Shamim was brought to the ACC for questioning on the third day and Khaled Mahmud as the second day. Earlier, they were kept in the custody of Ramna and Shahbag police stations.

On October 27, Dhaka Metropolitan Special Judge’s Court granted a seven-day remand for Shamim. The ACC has started interrogating Shamim on Sunday. On that day, he was brought to the ACC from Keraniganj Central Jail.

On October 21, two cases were filed against Khaled and Shamim with the ACC’s Coordinated District Office-1. Md Salauddin, the deputy director of the ACC, lodged the suit against Shamim. He was accused of acquiring and possessing assets worth Tk 297,08,99,551 ‘illegally incompatible with known income’.
