ACC approves charges against BNS Group chairman

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Monday approved a charge sheet against MNH Bulu, chairman of BNS Group of Companies, in a case filed over concealing information of wealth and amassing illegal wealth.

The anti-graft body approved the charge sheet at a meeting held at the commission’s Segunbagicha headquarters in the capital, said ACC spokesperson M Arif Sadiq.

On October 7, 2018, ACC’s Deputy Director Wakil Ahmed filed the case with Ramna Model Police Station against MNH Bulu on charges of concealing information of wealth worth Tk 109 crore, and amassing illegal wealth worth Tk 24.78 crore.

According to the case statement, Bulu submitted his wealth statement on April 20, 2016 to ACC where he mentioned movable properties worth Tk 60.33 crore and immovable properties Tk 257.8 crore.

ACC examined his tax return files and found that Bulu concealed information about his wealth in his statement submitted to the commission.
