The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) yesterday filed cases against former Awami League (AL) ministers Syeda Sajeda Chowdhury and AKM Jahangir in connection with amassing wealth illegally and concealing wealth information to the commission.
ACC Assistant Director Mozahar Ali Sarder filed the case against AL presidium member and former environment and forest minister Sajeda Chowdhury in connection with concealing wealth worth Tk 13.84 lakh to the ACC and amassing the said wealth illegally.
The complainant said investigation revealed that Sajeda spent Tk 12.1 lakh to build a house at her village home in Nagarkanda of Fridpur but she in her wealth statement filed with the ACC claimed she had spent Tk 3 lakh. She concealed Tk 9.1 lakh, he added.
