Later on 22 November, RAB filed a case against Golden Monir with Badda Police Station under the Narcotics Control Act, Arms and Special Powers Act.
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), on 3 December, approved a chargesheet against Golden Monir for allegedly acquiring illegal assets. The ACC, on 13 March 2012, filed a case against Monir with Ramna Model Police Station in the capital for illegal acquisition of assets
Earlier, the ACC issued a notice to Monir asking the number of his assets, however, he submitted his assets ‘till 2009’ after receiving the notice. Later, the ACC’s investigation was suspended due to a writ petition filed in the High Court.
