The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has given approval to file a case against former Deputy Inspector General of police (DIG) Mizanur Rahman for amassing over Tk 3 crore illegally.
Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya, ACC deputy director and public relations officer, confirmed the matter to media on Monday.
ACC also issued a restriction order which prevents DIG Mizan to go abroad, news channel News24 reports.
Earlier on June 22, a Dhaka court ordered authorities concerned to freeze movable and immovable properties of DIG Mizan, following a petition by the anti-corruption watchdog.
DIG Mizan, who is facing an ACC probe over allegation of amassing wealth illegally, has recently claimed that the commission’s inquiry officer Khandaker Enamul Basir took Tk 40 lakh from him as bribe with a false promise of exonerating him from all charges.
How DIG Mizan came to limelight
DIG Mizan first came under the ACC scanner, in January last year, as he was accused of forcibly marrying and torturing a female news presenter.
The ACC also initiated probe on his properties in May in the same year. Soon after that, Mizan was withdrawn from his post at the Dhaka Metropolitan Police.
On June 10 this year, the ACC suspended its Director Khandaker Basir and removed him from the probe body on allegation of leaking information to the accused police official.
