The ACC will interrogate its suspended director Enamul Basir on Monday afternoon
Suspended Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of police Mizanur Rahman has skipped interrogation by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) over bribery allegations.
DIG Mizan was scheduled to appear at ACC's Segunbagicha office at 10am on Monday, but he did not appear citing personal reason, said ACC Public Relations Officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya.
However, the ACC will interrogate its suspended director Enamul Basir on Monday afternoon, reports UNB.
The ACC ordered Enamul Basir and Mizanur Rahman, who was suspended on Tuesday, to appear before it on July 1 for facing interrogation over the bribery allegation.
Basir was suspended on June 10 for allegedly leaking information, a breach of job discipline.

According to a report run by a private TV channel, Enamul Basir, who was assigned to look into the corruption allegations against DIG Mizan, took Tk40 lakh as bribe from him with a promise to give him a clean chit.
Later, the ACC formed a three member inquiry committee with ACC Director Sheikh Md Fanafillah as its head to look into the matter.
After reviewing the committee's findings, the national anti-graft body suspended Basir on charges of illegally transmitting its data and violating the job discipline.
DIG Mizan, former additional commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP), was withdrawn on January 9, 2018 following allegations of threatening a female news presenter of a private television channel.
Mizan reportedly picked up a 25-year-old woman in July 2017 and forcibly married her.
