ACC suspends its director Enamul

DHAKA, The AntiCorruption Commission (ACC) today

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 Commission's headquarters here this afternoon.

The ACC was not embarrassed after an allegation was raised against him

(Khandaker Enamul Basir), he said.

Mahmood said the national antigraft 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Enamul has been withdrawn from the inquiry into the allegation of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.
