Suspended DIG Mizanur seeks anticipatory bail

Suspended Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police Mizanur Rahman Sunday filed a plea seeking anticipatory bail in a graft case, reports BSS. Confirming the filing of the plea, Anti-Corruption 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 Sub Inspector of Police Mahmudul Hasan for concealing information about wealth of Tk 3.7 crore and amassing illegal wealth of Tk 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.
