ACC to quiz Bengal Group owner Litu again on graft charges
Officials of national anti-graft agency on Thursday said they would question Bengal Group’s owner Abul Khair Litu again if an ongoing investigation against him matures. Headed by Deputy Director Md Mosharraf Hossain Mridha, an Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) team grilled the industrialist at his Gulshan headquarters for two hours for the first time on Wednesday afternoon. According to ACC Director Syed Iqbal Hossain, who is spearheading the investigation, Litu is facing several counts of charges, including embezzlement of money from banks by fraud, dodging tax and money laundering. “We asked for specific documents relating to the allegations against him [Litu],” said the ACC director. The industrialist, however, said the ACC officials spoke with him “but no specific charge was discussed.” “They [ACC officials] only asked for documents related to my assets,” said Litu. The ACC received a complaint against Litu and his family members in September over several allegations, which includes embezzling money from banks in fraudulent ways and evading payment of tax and VAT worth crores of taka. The complaint also stated that Litu acquired assets worth billions from unknown sources, which he used to purchase several houses, flats and plots at upscale Dhaka areas, and in the US, Singapore and Canada.
