The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Monday approved a charge sheet against three people including a former engineer of Bangladesh Chemical Industries Corporation (BCIC) and two owners of private firms for misappropriating fertiliser worth over Tk 11 crore from government warehouse.

The anti-graft body approved the charge sheet at a meeting held at the commission’s headquarters in the capital’s Segunbagicha, said ACC spokesperson Pranab Kumar Bhattcharjee. The accused are Nabir Uddin Khan, former deputy-chief engineer of BCIC, who was in-charge of buffer fertiliser warehouse at Santahar in Naogaon, and Moshiur Rahman Khan, the owner of South Delta Shipping and Trading Company and Rashedul Islam Raja, owner of Raja Enterprise.
