The Anti-Corruption Commission has quizzed Bangladeshi lawmaker Mohammad Shahid Islam, alias Papul’s, two close associates over money laundering and amassing illegal wealth. 

ACC Deputy Director Md Salahuddin interrogated AKM Salauddin Tipu and Arif Hossain at ACC headquarters on Wednesday.

On September 8, the commission had interrogated Awami League activists Jamshed Kabir alias Baki Billah and Nur Uddin Chowdhury Nayan.

On July 22, Papul’s wife, Salina Islam, his sister-in-law, Jasmine Akter Pradhan, were quizzed by the anti-graft body.

Earlier on July 12, the commission summoned the duo for allegedly assisting Lakshmipur 2 MP in human trafficking and amassing illegal wealth.

On June 22, the ACC sent a letter to Bangladesh Bank to freeze business accounts of Papul, his wife Salina, daughter Wafa Islam, and sister-in-law Jasmine in domestic and foreign banks and financial institutions. On June 9, the ACC served notices to MP Shahid Islam and members of his family, seeking their wealth statements.

On February 26, the ACC launched an inquiry against Papul over allegations of his amassing Tk1,400 crore through his involvement in human trafficking to Kuwait and other countries.

Papul was arrested by the Kuwaiti police on June 7 from the Musharraf area. A case was filed against him for human trafficking, money laundering, and exploitation of business workers. He is currently imprisoned in Kuwait.
