The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has assigned an officer to enquire into the allegations of amassing assets illegally by expelled Jubo Mohila League leader Shamima Nur Papiya.
The move came today after the commission had decided to start an enquiry against her on Thursday.
The anti-graft watchdog has assigned ACC Deputy Director Shahin Ara Mamtaz for the task, said the commission's spokesperson Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee.
ACC Director (Special Enquiry and Investigation-2) Syed Iqbal Hossain will be the supervisory officer for the issue, Pranab added.
On February 22, the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested expelled general secretary of Jubo Mohila League's Narsingdi district unit Papiya and her husband along with their accomplices from the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport with counterfeit bank notes, foreign currencies, and around Tk2.5 lakh in cash.
The RAB later raided Papiya's flats in Farmgate and recovered a foreign-made pistol, two magazines, 20 rounds of bullets, five bottles of foreign-made liquor and Tk5.8 crore in cash, credit and debit cards of different banks from there.
The RAB filed three separate cases in this regard.
On February 24, a Dhaka court placed Papiya and her husband Suman on a 15-day remand each in these cases.
