The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Monday suspended its director Khandaker Enamul Basir for allegedly leaking out information of a probe and violating official discipline.
ACC chairman Iqbal Mahmood confirmed the matter while talking to reporters in front of the Commissions headquarters in Dhaka this afternoon, reports BSS
“The ACC was not embarrassed after an allegation was raised against him (Khandaker Enamul Basir),” he said.
Mahmood said the national anti-graft agency has already formed a three-member committee to probe the allegation raised against the ACC director.
The committee comprised of ACC secretary Mohammad Delwar Bakth (convener), and its directors general Md Mofizul Islam Bhuiyan (legal) and Sayeed Mahbub Khan (admin).
The committee has already submitted its probe report. After scrutinising the report, the ACC suspended its director Khandaker Enamul Basir for allegedly leaking out information of a probe and violating official discipline, an ACC press release said.
“Enamul has been withdrawn from the inquiry into the allegation of accumulating illegal wealth by DIG Minzanur Rahman. A committee was formed to probe the allegation raised against Enamul. But, Enamul told the committee that he did not take bribe,” the ACC chief said.
Replying to a question, he said the recorded conversations between DIG Mizanur Rahman and Enamul will be sent to the authorities concerned for forensic test to know its accuracy.
There was an allegation that ACC director Enamul took Taka 40 lakh in bribe from deputy inspector general (DIG) of police Mizanur Rahman, alluring to skip him from a graft allegation.
