Khalid has been charged with acquiring Tk5.5 crore illegally

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has interrogated former organizing secretary of Jubo League's Dhaka south city unit Khalid Mahmud Bhuiyan for the first day of his seven-day remand.

“An ACC team, led by its Director Syed Iqbal Hossain, began quizzing him at its headquarters in Dhaka's Segunbagicha on charges of amassing illegal wealth,” ACC spokesperson Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya said on Monday. 

Khalid has been charged with acquiring Tk5.5 crore illegally.

Alongside the case filed by ACC, Khalid is also facing four more cases under Arms Act, Narcotics Control Act, and Money Laundering Prevention Act.

The expelled Jubo League leader was brought to the ACC headquarters from Dhaka Central Jail in Keraniganj around 3pm.

Meanwhile, the ACC also interrogated former Jubo League leader Golam Kibria Shamim alias GK Shamim on the charges of accumulating wealth illegally.

On October 21, the anti-graft watchdog filed two cases against Shamim and Khalid.

On October 27, a Dhaka court placed the duo on seven-day remand under ACC custody in the cases.

Khalid, also president of Fakirerpool Youngmen's Club, was arrested in Dhaka's Gulshan area by Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) on September 18 for running an illegal casino inside the sporting club.
