The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has started an investigation against Deputy Attorney General Fazlur Rahman Khan in the light of several allegations against him, including the accumulation of illegal wealth.
The anti-corruption watchdog has appointed its Assistant Director Abdul Wadud to investigate the matter.
Earlier this month, the ACC was made aware of an allegation that Fazlur Rahman Khan had accumulated a massive amount of illegitimate wealth (inconsistent with his legal income) through an abuse of power in his capacity as deputy attorney general.
Following an initial verification of the allegation, the ACC took the matter into cognizance and decided to investigate further.
The ACC sources said they will now send a summons notice to the accused, seeking an explanation regarding the allegation against him.
When contacted, Deputy Attorney General Fazlur Rahman Khan told The Business Standard that he was still unaware about the nature of the allegation brought against him.
"Any allegation brought against me by the ACC is completely groundless," he claimed.
