ACC probe found that the accused were helping each other to acquire false NID cards and birth certificates

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Tuesday filed a case against 11 including public officials for helping Rohingyas get Bangladeshi National Identity (NID) cards and passports.

The deputy assistant director of ACC district integrated office of Chittagong 2, Md  Sharif Uddin, filed the case.

Accused officials and public representatives are office secretary of Doublemooring thana election office Md Jaynal Abedin, senior district election officer MLSS Md Nur Ahmmed, Saifuddin Chowdhury, data entry officer of Hathazari election office, technical expert of Keraniganj upazila election office Satya Sundar Dey, former chairman of Hathazari-Mirzapur union Md Nurul Absar; Mirzapur UP Ward 5 member Md Nurul Islam, and Mirzapur UP former birth certificate official Md Belal Uddin.

Besides, Md Abdur Salam, Md Azizur Rahman, Ramzan Bibi and Najir Ahmed, four residents of Mirzapur union, were also accused in the case.

In 2019 a Rohingya woman named Ramjan Bibi was arrested while trying to collect her NID as a Bangladeshi citizen from the Chittagong EC office.

Later during interrogation, she confessed that many Rohingya citizens were getting NID cards with the help of some officials of the EC office.

Many of the accused were arrested after that from different parts of the country, including the main perpetrators, according to investigators. 

ACC in its investigation got proof of the accused helping each other in acquiring false NID cards and birth certificates.
