A Dhaka court today adjourned till December 21 the hearing of a graft case against suspended deputy inspector general (DIG) of police Mizanur Rahman and suspended director of Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Khandaker Enamul Basir.

Tuesday was fixed for recording deposition of prosecution witnesses and the two accused were also produced before the court for that. But none appeared before the court to testify, making the prosecution plead for time.

Allowing the time plea, Judge Sheikh Nazmul Alam of Dhaka Special Judge Court-4 adjourned the hearing till December 21.

Nine out of the total 17 witnesses have so far testified in the case.

The court on March 18 framed charges against the two accused in the case.

Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Qayesh on February 9 accepted the charge-sheet and transferred the case for further proceedings to Dhaka Special Judge Court-4.

ACC Director Sheikh Mohammad Fanafilya on January 19 filed the chargesheet against the duo for allegedly leaking information and taking bribes.

The anti-graft body on July 16, 2019, filed the case with its Dhaka district coordination office-1 under the Money Laundering Prevention Act.

Both the officials were suspended from their respected agencies after the allegations of taking and giving bribes were lodged against them.

Mizanur leaked a couple of audio clips, saying he has given Tk40 lakh as a bribe to Khandaker Enamul Basir to suppress the graft allegations brought against him.
