The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Tuesday approved charges against Abdul Malek, a former driver at the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS), and his wife Nargis Begum in a case filed on charges of amassing illegal wealth.

The anti-graft body at a meeting held at the commission’s Segunbagicha headquarters approved the charges against the couple, said ACC Public Relations Officer M Arif Sadiq.

According to the case statement, driver Malek provided a false and baseless asset statement to the anti-graft watchdog by hiding information of movable and immovable assets worth over Tk 93 lakh.

Besides, he possessed more than Tk 1.5 crore worth of movable and immovable wealth, which does not adjust to his known income sources. Malek’s wife Nargis Begum also accumulated wealth worth Tk 1.10 crore illegally.
