The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has arrested four people – three current and former Cox’s Bazar municipality councillors – for enrolling Rohingyas as Bangladeshi voters.

They were arrested during different drives from their homes on early Sunday.

The arrestees have been identified as – incumbent Councilor of Ward No 2 of Cox's Bazar Municipality Mizanur Rahman, former Ward No 10 councillor Jabed Kaiser Nobel, former Ward No 11 councillor Rafiqul Islam and the municipality’s Office Assistant Didarul Islam. 

ACC’s Chittagong Integrated Office 2 Deputy Director Mahbub Alam and Assistant Director Sharif Uddin led the drive and arrested the four accused.

Confirming the matter to Dhaka Tribune, Sharif Uddin, ACC deputy assistant director, said, “The four were arrested for helping Rohingyas get registered in the voter list through forgery. 

“We received information that they sought illegal ways while performing their duties. A case was filed against them in this regard. They were arrested during our drives.”

“The four will be handed over to the Cox’s Bazar Sadar Model police station for further legal procedures,” The ACC official said, adding, “Total 12 cases have been filed in the last five years over enlisting of Rohingyas as voters, helping them to get Bangladeshi passports, birth certificates among other complaints.”
