Ex-DIG Mizan, suspended ACC director Basir charged with bribery
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) today submitted a charge sheet before a Dhaka court against suspended deputy inspector general (DIG) of police Mizanur Rahman and the commission’s suspended director Khandaker Enamul Basir in a bribery case.
Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of Senior Special Judge’s Court in Dhaka set February 9 for the next hearing after ACC Director Sheikh Md Fanafillah placed the charge sheet before it.
On July 16 last year, ACC filed the graft case against the duo for a transaction of Tk 40 lakh as bribe. Both of them are now in jail.
Mizan was handed over to police after he surrendered before a Dhaka court seeking bail in another graft case filed over amassing Tk 3.28 crore beyond known source of income.
Mizan was withdrawn on January 9, 2018 following allegations of threatening a female news presenter of a private television channel. He reportedly picked up a 25-year-old woman in July, 2017 and forcibly married her.
A team of ACC officials, led by Fanafillah, arrested Basir from Dhaka’s Mirpur area on July 22, 2019 on charges of the bribery.
