ACC threatens to sue DIG Mizan as he fails to submit docs08 May 2018 bdnews24.com
The Anti-Corruption Commission or ACC has threatened to file a case against Deputy Inspector General of police Mizanur Rahman for obstructing their investigation into his finances.
The police official failed to submit documents necessary for the investigation by the deadline, said ACC Secretary Md Shamsul Arefin.
In January, Rahman, who had a wife and a child, was accused of forcibly marrying another woman and beating her.
He was also alleged to have threatened a female journalist.
Rahman was later removed from the Dhaka Metropolitan Police and the ACC began an investigation into his illegal wealth.
ACC officials quizzed Rahman for seven hours at the corruption watchdog's offices in Dhaka on May 3. He was ordered to submit several documents regarding his wealth and earnings by Sunday.
"DIG Mizan was told to submit some documents for the ACC investigation by Monday," said ACC Secretary Arefin.
"But he has not done it. If he continues to obstruct the investigation this way, the ACC will file a case against him."
The ACC has received allegations that Rahman earned tens of millions of taka in bribes for lobbying, hiring, transfers and other acts of corruption.
On Feb 10, the ACC assigned ACC Deputy Director Farid Ahmed Patwari to scrutinise the allegations.
The home ministry is also investigating the various allegations against Rahman.
