Rajuk accountant held for 'money laundering'

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) today arrested an accountant of Dhaka development authority Rajdhani Unnayan Kartripakkha (Rajuk) over money laundering and fraudulence charges.

A team led by ACC deputy director Abu Bakkar Siddique detained Tahmidul Islam Milon from Dhaka’s Segunbagicha area this afternoon.

According to the commission, Milon is named as an accused in the First Information Reports (FIR) of two cases lodged with Shahbagh and Sher-e-Banglanagar Police Station last year for money laundering and fraudulence.

In the money laundering case, Milon has been accused of transferring around Tk 98 lakh through illegal means. The other case, which accused him of passport forgery, says that he made a passport introducing himself as a businessman despite being a civil servant.
