Anti-Corruption Commission Director Khandaker Enamul Bachhir has temporarily been suspended for leaking a probe report to Deputy Inspector General of Police Mizanur Rahman, who is accused of earning illegal wealth.
"A disciplinary action has been taken against him for breaching rules of service. A separate departmental inquiry will be conducted in connection with bribery allegations," ACC Chairman Iqbal Mahmood told reporters at the anti-graft agency's headquarters in Dhaka on Monday.
DIG Mizan in a television interview on Sunday claimed that ACC Director Enamul Bachhir took Tk 4 million in bribes from him promising that he would be dropped from the allegations. Bachhir also divulged information during the investigation, he said.
However, the ACC director denied that he did not take any bribe from DIG Mizan, reports bdnews24.com. Audio clips of mobile conversations between DIG Mizan and Enamul Bachhir were aired on television. Following the allegation, the ACC set up an inquiry committee headed by ACC Secretary Muhammad Delwar Bakht.
On May 3 last year, ACC Deputy Director Farid Ahmed Patwary interrogated Mizan about his alleged illegal wealth. Later, Bachhir was entrusted with the investigation against him.Mizan was withdrawn as additional commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police following a marital scandal in January last year.
