Charge sheet against DIG Mizan, Basir accepted

A Dhaka court on Sunday accepted charge sheet filed against suspended deputy inspector general (DIG) of police Mizanur Rahman and suspended director of Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Khandaker Enamul Basir in a graft case, reports BSS.

Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Qayes accepted the charge sheet in presence of the accused and transferred the case for further proceedings to Dhaka Special Judge Court-4.

The court also set April 4 for holding hearing on charge framing.

ACC Director Sheikh Mohammad Fanafilya on January 19 filed the charge sheet against the duo for allegedly leaking information and taking bribe.

The anti-graft body on July 16, 2019, filed the case with its Dhaka district coordination office-1 under the Money Laundering Prevention Act.

Both the officials were suspended from their respected agencies after the allegations of taking and giving bribes were lodged against them.

Mizanur leaked a couple audio clips, saying he has given Taka forty lakh as bribe to Khandaker Enamul Basir to suppress the graft allegations brought against him.
