Suspended ACC director Basir seeks bail from High Court

Suspended Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) director Khandaker Enamul Basir on Sunday filed a bail petition with the High Court, seeking bail in a case filed over the transaction of Tk 40 lakh as bribe.

His lawyer MM Jamal Hossain filed the petition claiming that Basir is innocent and he has become a victim of circumstance.

On July 23, the Senior Special Judge's Court in Dhaka sent the suspended ACC official to jail, rejecting his bail petition in the bribery case.

Basir was arrested from a house in Dhaka's Darus Salam area on July 22.

On July 16, ACC Director Fanafillah filed the case with the ACC’s Dha-ka District Coordination Office-1 under the anti-money laundering act on charge of taking Tk 40 lakh in bribes from suspended deputy inspector general of police Mizanur Rahman.

Basir was suspended on June 10 for allegedly leaking information, a breach of job discipline.
