The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Monday interrogated suspended deputy inspector general (DIG) of police Mizanur Rahman at jail gate on charges of giving bribe.

A 3-member team of the anti-graft body led by its Sheikh Md Fanafillah quizzed DIG Mizan at Dhaka Central Jail gate in Keraniganj, said ACC public relation officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee.

Earlier, ACC interrogated DIG Mizan’s bodyguard Redoy Hasan and driver Saddam Hossain on July 7 and it also interrogated his office staff Sumon on June 26 over giving Tk40 lakh to suspended ACC director Khandaker Enamul Basir as bribe.  

On July 11, Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of the Dhaka Senior Special Judges’ Court allowed the ACC to interrogate DIG Mizanur at jail gate on July 15 after ACC Director Sheikh Md Fanafillah submitted a petition seeking permission to interrogate him.

Earlier July 2, the same court sent him to jail after rejecting his bail petition in a case filed against him on charges of amassing over Tk 3 crore beyond his known sources of income.

DIG Mizan has recently alleged that ACC’s investigation officer Khandaker Enamul Basir took Tk 40 lakh as bribe with a false promise of exonerating him of all charges.
