A charge sheet was submitted before a court against suspended deputy inspector general (DIG) of police Mizanur Rahman and the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC)’s suspended director Khandaker Enamul Basir in a bribery case. 

ACC Director Sheikh Md Fanafillah, investigation officer of the case, placed the charge sheet before Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of Senior Special Judge’s Court in Dhaka on Sunday. Later, the Judge set February 9 for the next hearing in the case. 

Both of them are now in jail.

The anti-graft body filed the case with its Dhaka district coordination office-1 under the Money Laundering Prevention Act. Both the officials were suspended from their respected agencies after the allegations of taking and giving bribes were lodged against them.

Mizan was handed over to police after he surrendered before a Dhaka court seeking bail in another graft case filed over amassing Tk 3.28 crore beyond known source of income.

Mizanur leaked a couple of audio clips, saying he has given Tk 40 lakh as bribe to ACC director Khandaker Enamul Basir to suppress the graft allegations brought against him. A team of ACC officials, led by Fanafillah, arrested Basir from Dhaka’s Mirpur area on July 22, 2019, on charges of the bribery.
