Rajuk project director, BRTA AD nabbed by ACC

The Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) on Monday arrested a project director of Rajdhani Unnayan Kartripakkha (Rajuk) for allegedly plundering money.


Quoting ACC public relations officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya, UNB reports that an ACC team, led by its deputy director SM Rafiqul Islam, arrested Rajuk project director SM Shafiqur Rahman from city’s Segunbagicha around 12 pm today.


In July 2015, businessman Ferdous Kabir filed a case against Shafiqur Rahman with Gulshan Police Station for allegedly swindling Tk 81.5 lakh alluring him to give a 10 katha plot in the Purbachal housing project. But, Shafiqur pocketed the money without giving him the plot.


The Commission is currently investigating the case and he has been arrested in the interest of the probe.


The ACC team also arrested former assistant director of Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) Abu Ashraf Siddique from city’s Keraniganj area on Monday afternoon, ACC secretary Abu M Mustafa Kamal told reporters at his office.


Siddique is an accused in at least five cases in Cox’s Bazar for allegedly misappropriating public money by issuing fake BRTA registration numbers to vehicles.
