ACC conducts operations in Ctg, Barishal, Gaibandha

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Tuesday launched an operation against Abul Kalam Majumder, an accounting officer at the Chattogram Regional Accounts Center under the Water Development Board, on charges of irregularities and corruption.


The operation was conducted from the Integrated District Office, Chattogram-1.


During the operation, the ACC team learned that Kalam has been transferred recently. The team gathered information from his former colleagues and local service recipients.


A complaint was lodged with the ACC alleging that he had bought a flat illegally. The existence of the flat was found on the spot by the enforcement team.


A report will be submitted to the Commission seeking approval for a detailed inquiry against Kalam as the allegation of illicit acquisition of assets was initially apparent.

ACC also raided Barishal central jail for corruption and irregularities in meal distribution while an ACC team visit the Gaibandha municipality office to look into the allegations of corruption by the mayor.


The mayor withdrew money preparing fake documents and bills in the name of his office employees.
