ACC files case against ex-OC, his wife for concealing wealth information

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) today filed a case against former police Inspector Shahjahan and his wife Ferdousi Akter for concealing information of their assets worth about Tk 1,71,736 providing false statement and transfer of assets of Taka 1,48,04413.

Atikul Alam, Deputy Director (DD) of the ACC Integrated Office-2, filed the case against them with its office here this noon.  

Earlier, Ratan Kumar Das, DD of the ACC headquarters, now attached with Chattogram ACC Integrated Office-2, filed another case against Shahjahan with Chattogram ACC Integrated Office-1 on Janurary 4 this year.

In the case filed by the ACC, Inspector Shahjahan has been accused of misusing his power and concealing information acquiring assets worth Tk 4.9 million. At the same time, assets worth about Tk 7.8 million are found to be inconsistent with his known source of income, in the first case.

Md Shahjahan, son of Sultan Ahmed from Katalia area of Lalmai in Cumilla, was the Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Lohagara Police Station for more than six years.

Police headquarters issued transfer orders several times but he remained on duty at the same police station defying higher authority’s direction.

Md Shahjahan, now working at tourist police in Chattogram region, submitted an income tax statement to the ACC where he concealed information of his wealth.
