A Dhaka court has issued arrest warrants against former Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Mizanur Rahman's wife and younger brother over allegations of amassing illegal wealth.

Dhaka Senior Special Judge KM Imrul Kayes issued the warrants on Sunday, after taking the charge sheets against Sohelia Anar Ratna and Mahbubur Rahman Swapan into cognizance.

Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Public Prosecutor Mahmudur Rahman Jahangir told Dhaka Tribune the court also transferred the case to the Dhaka Special Judge Court 4, and fixed March 3 for the next hearing in the case.

The suspended DIG and his nephew, Sub-Inspector Mahmudul Hasan of Dhaka’s Kotwali police station, are currently in jail over the corruption case.

On Jan 30,2020, the investigation officer of the case, also ACC Director Manjur Morshed submitted the charge sheets against them to the court.

In 2018, the ACC launched a probe into the wealth of DIG Mizan, after he was relieved of duties following allegations of torturing a woman.

On June 20,2019, a Dhaka court ordered that DIG Mizan’s assets be confiscated and bank accounts should be frozen.

On June 24 of the same year, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed a case against Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Mizanur Rahman and three of his family members for amassing illegal wealth worth TK3.28 crore.

Others accused in the case include DIG Mizan’s wife Sohelia, his younger brother Mahbubur and nephew Mahmudul.
