ACC launches probe into issuance of NIDs to Rohingyas

Anti-Corruption Commission today said they launched an investigation into the issuance of National Identification Cards to Rohingya refugees.

“If anyone is found guilty in this regard, the commission will lodge cases against them,” Public Relations Officer of ACC Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee told The Daily Star.

The ACC has started their investigation today, he added.

Earlier this month, police and passport officials said some Rohingya refugees were making Bangladeshi passports using forged NID cards with the help of some locals and Rohingya brokers.

The Rohingya people were using fake names and addresses while applying for the identification documents.

Recently, a government probe body found that at least 73 suspicious applications were uploaded to the Election Commission database for issuing NID cards.
