The Anti-Corruption Commission today filed two separate cases against Utpal Kumar Dey, Public Works Department additional chief engineer, and his wife Gopa Dey for allegedly amassing illegal wealth and laundering money.
One case has been filed against Utpal and another against his wife Gopa dey.
Earlier, ACC on July 28 decided to sue Utpal Kumar Dey and his wife Gopa Dey in this regard.
ACC Assistant Director Neyamul Hasan Gazi will file the case shortly against the couple for illegally amassing around Tk8 crore and for money laundering.
The commission said Tk8 crore in assets is considered "disproportionate for this government employee."
According to ACC sources, Utpal had previously come under fire for cooperating with Gulam Kibria (GK) Shamim – the arrested tender mafia and expelled Jubo League leader – and for amassing illegal wealth by helping GK Shamim.
