ACC investigating Hefazat leaders Babunagri, Mamunul for graft, fund embezzlement

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) launched an investigation against over 50 Hefazat-e-Islam leaders including Junaid Babungari and Mamunul Haque on charges of embezzling funds and corruption.

They have allegedly embezzled a huge sum of money from the organisation's funds, various madrassas, orphanages, Islamic institutions and foreign aid for religious purposes.

The decision to investigate was taken by the commission after the detectives of Bangladesh Bank and the ACC found truth in the allegation.

ACC sources said that a team of eight members has been formed, led by Akhtar Hossain Azad.
