Staff Reporter :
The top officials of the Election Commission (EC) have been placed under surveillance on suspicion of their involment in the national identity card (NIDs) forgery, correction, duel NIDs and enlistment Rohingyas in voter list.
In the meantime, an agency has found unhealthy transaction in the EC's four officials' bank accounts. The bank accounts of those officials will be iced any time.  Sources said, different agencies are operating more investigation about the alleged officials more bank accounts and wealth.
The EC has also started cleansing of NIDs wings. Already two Deputy Directors and one Assistant Director have been transferred.  Reshuffle may occur in the director level next week.
Besides, the NIDs wing is operating a strict drive to destroy the NID forgery rings across the country. Meanwhile, it has been done in Dhaka's various offices.
 Brigadier General Mohammad Saidul Islam, Director General of NID Wing, said, "We have a wide plan for NIDs wing. As the part of the plan, we have trausferred few officials. It will continue. We are trying to do something new."
Meanwhile, Dhaka Metropolitan DB police got important information from the arrested five members of NIDs
forgery gangs. They have named few EC's high officials. An unhealthy transaction has been found in the forgery gangs' bank accounts. Police have been searching bank accounts of those who are related with the group.
Assistant Commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan DB Police Modhusudan Das said, the names of several officials have been found in the interrogation of the members of the fraud ring. We are checking and sorting them. Their bank accounts are being searched. In addition, the accounts of those who took bank loans through fraudulent national identity cards from the fraudsters are being taken into consideration. Unusual transactions have been observed in their accounts.
Commission sources said a large number of EC officials are involved in national identity card forgery, correction and dual NIDs, and enlistment of Rohingyas in voter list.
A number of dishonest officials and employees of the EC Secretariat, some district and upazila officials and some data entry operators are working in this group. They carry out major correction work through field staff.
They then did that through top officials. Tk 50 thousand to one lakh is transacted in these works. Apart from this, those involved are committing various criminal acts, including forged documents, land grabbing with amended NID through forgery.
EC officials said data entry operators are not the only ones committing fraud. There is a big godfather behind them. However, when NID fraud is investigated, big officials remain out of reach.
Commission sources said that many EC officials have become home owners by lobbying for election training, various purchases, re-run of elections with different local election schedules, gazette of results, change of results and big amendments of NID. Many of them in Dhaka have huge land property.
He said that if the statements of the assets of the joint-secretary, deputy-secretary and assistant-secretary level officials of the EC were summoned, everything would have come out. Though it is hard to have houses, cars and flats the dishonest officials of the EC are earning huge sums of money in various ways.
