The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has asked special branch (SB) of police to prevent incumbent director of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Mahbubul Anam to go abroad.
A letter signed by ACC’s Deputy Director Manjur Alam yesterday requested superintendent of police of SB to take necessary steps to prevent him from leaving the country.
“There is an inquiry against Mahbubul Anam over allegations of amassing crores of money illegally through tender manipulation, recruitment business and misusing power in selecting sponsor,” said the letter.
There are also allegations against him of amassing wealth beyond known sources of income, it also said.
The letter reads the ACC has learnt from confidential sources that the alleged person is trying to leave the country along with his family.
“For the sake of proper inquiry, it is necessary to prevent the alleged person from leaving the country,” it said.
On October 27, ACC filed a case against another BCB director Lokman Hossain Bhuiyan for amassing wealth Tk 4.34 crore beyond known sources of income.
According to the FIR, Lokman, also director (in-charge) of Mohammedan Sporting Club, used to collect Tk 21 lakh per month from the casino business at the club. He transferred about Tk 41 crore to banks in Australia.
