Suspended DIG Mizanur seeks anticipatory bail

DHAKA, Suspended Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of

Police Mizanur Rahman today filed a plea seeking anticipatory bail in a graft

case.

Confirming the filing of the plea, AntiCorruption Commission (ACC)

counsel Khurshid Alam Khan said High Court division bench comprising Justice

Obaidul Hassan and Justice SM Kuddus Zaman may hear the matter.

ACC director Monjur Morshed filed the case on June 24 against Mizanur, his

wife Sohelia Anar Ratna, brother Mahbubur Rahman and nephew and SubInspector

of Police Mahmudul Hasan for concealing information about wealth of Taka 3.7

crore and amassing illegal wealth of Taka 3.28 crore.

Mizanur grabbed the media attention for all the wrong reasons, as he was

first accused of harassing and torturing a woman. Later, ACC launched

investigation against him over allegations of graft.

Mizanur, later, leaked a couple audio clips, saying he has given Taka 40

lakh as bribe to ACC Director Khandaker Enamul Basir to suppress the graft

allegations brought against him.
