DIG Mizan suspended

Controversial Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of police Mizanur Rahman has been suspended as of Tuesday.

Public Relations Officer of Home Ministry Sharif Mahmud Apu confirmed the matter, adding that a notification had already been issued in this regard.

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Monday (June 24) ordered its director Enamul Basir and Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of police Mizanur Rahman to appear before it on July 1 for interrogation.

On May 3 last year, the ACC interrogated the DIG in connection with accumulation of illegal wealth. The commission also reportedly found his involvement in money laundering.

DIG Mizan, former additional commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP), was withdrawn on January 9, 2018 following allegations of threatening a female news presenter of a private television channel.

Mizan reportedly picked up a 25-year-old woman in July, 2017 and forcibly married her.
