Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Qayes had accepted the charge-sheet on February 9 and transferred the case for further proceedings to Dhaka Special Judge Court 4.
ACC Director Sheikh Mohammad Fanafilya had filed the charge sheet against the duo on January 19 for allegedly leaking information and taking bribes. The anti-graft body had filed the case with its Dhaka District Coordination Office 1 under the Money Laundering Prevention Act on July 16,2019.
Both the officials were suspended from their respective agencies after the allegations of taking and giving bribes were lodged against them.
Mizanur leaked a couple of audio clips saying that he had given Tk. 40,000,00 as a bribe to Khandaker Enamul Basir, to suppress the graft allegations brought against him.
