The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) today sued former health minister Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain for laundering over Tk 9.53 crore to the United Kingdom.

ACC Director Nasim Anwar filed the case with Ramna Police Station stating that cashing influence of his post, the BNP leader amassed the amount between 2001 and 2006 and deposited that with a bank account in the UK.

An investigation by the graft-watchdog has found that the amount was kept at a joint bank account of Khandaker and his wife Bilkis Akhter with Lloyds TSB Offshore Private Banking, St Peterport, Guernsey, Channel Island, GY 14EN, UK.

Nasim said Bilkis was not made accused in the case but her role will be examined during the investigation.
