Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) today quizzed Awami League lawmaker Mohammad Mizanur Rahman for about five hours over alleged illegal accumulation of wealth.
ACC Deputy Director Manjur Morshed began grilling the ruling party lawmaker from Khulna-2 constituency at 10:00am.
However, while talking to journalists, Mizanur said the allegations brought against him are baseless.
"A group has brought the allegations to tarnish my image," he alleged.
ACC asked him to submit wealth statement.
Mizanur said that he will submit his wealth statement within a day or two.
The ACC issued a notice on April 4 asking him to appear before it on April 16 for interrogation over allegation of amassing illegal wealth.
Rahman, also the general secretary of Khulna city unit AL, has allegedly embezzled huge amount of money by misusing his power at the Khulna City Corporation (KCC) and other public offices to secure work orders in the name of his family members and running trade in contraband drugs.
