Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) director Sheikh Fanafillah has submitted a charge sheet against former Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of police Mizanur Rahman and suspended ACC director Khandaker Enamul Basir.

The duo was allegedly involved in the exchange of Tk40 lakh in bribes.

The charge sheet was submitted to the court of Dhaka Senior Special Judge KM Imrul Kayes on Sunday.

The accused have been charged in the case under Sections 161/165 (A)/109 of the Prevention of Corruption Act and 5 (2) of the Money Laundering Act.

Later, the judge signed the charge sheet with the comment "seen" and the next hearing is set to be on February 9.

Earlier on Jul 16, 2019, ACC Director Sheikh Md Fanafillah filed the case and also worked on the case as the investigative officer.

On July 21, DIG Mizanur, who was sent to jail by the High Court earlier, was shown arrested in the case.

Disgraced police officer Mizanur in a television interview, claimed that ACC official Basir took Tk40 lakh in bribes from him, promising that he would be given a clean chit.

Basir also divulged probe details during the investigation, according to ACC officials.

Audio clips of mobile conversations between DIG Mizan and Basir were aired on television.

Basir refuted the allegations and said that the DIG had supplied a forged clip to a television channel, using an imitation of his voice.

Basir was removed from his office and replaced by another ACC director, Md Monzur Morshed after the allegations surfaced.

Both Mizanur and Basir were subsequently suspended by their respective institutions.
