Barapukuria coal scam: ACC quizzes 8 accused

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) today interrogated eight accused employees of Barapukuria Coal Mining Company Limited (BCMCL) in a case filed over the Barapukuria coal scam.

The six-hour-long interrogation was held at the commission’s office in Dhaka’s Segunbagicha from 9:30am to 3:30pm, reports our staff correspondent.

The accused BCMCL officials are: Abu Taher Md Nuruzzaman Chowdhury, general manager (mine operation); AKM Khaledul Islam, deputy general manager (store department); Md Morsheduzzaman, deputy manager (maintenance and operation); Md Habibur Rahman, deputy manager (production management); Md Zahedur Rahman, deputy manager (mine development); Satyendra Nath Barman, assistant manager (ventilation management); Syed Imam Hasan, manager (security); and Zobayer Ali, deputy general manager (mine planning operation).

However, after the interrogation, neither the accused nor the ACC made any comment in this regard.

The case was filed with Parbatipur Police Station in Dinajpur on July 24 in connection with disappearance of around 1.45 lakh tonnes of coal worth around Tk 230 crore, according to ACC sources.

Eight more persons accused in the case, including the former managing director of BCMCL Habib Uddin Ahmed, will be interrogated tomorrow, ACC authorities said.
