The Anti-Corruption Commission today summoned Aslamul Haque, a ruling party lawmaker from Dhaka-14 (Mirpur), for interrogating him on charge of accumulating a huge amount of wealth during a short period.
The lawmaker has been asked to appear before the ACC at 10:00am on March 5, a top official of the anti-graft body told The Daily Star.
The interrogation move against him came after the ACC on January 22 launched probes into corruption allegations against five former ministers and lawmakers and two incumbent MPs including Haque.
The ACC took the initiative against the seven persons based on media reports that said their wealth had increased a memorable amount during the last tenure of the ruling party.
Earlier the commission had interrogated Awami League lawmaker Abdul Rahman Bodi and former minister AFM Ruhal Haque on the same allegations.
The four others are: former state minister for water resources Mahbubur Rahman, former state minister for housing and public affairs Abdul Mannan Khan, and former MPs Enamul Haque and Abdul Zabbar.
