The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has filed a file a case against former minister and BNP leader Barrister Nazmul Huda, for allegedly providing fake evidence in a graft case he filed against former chief justice SK Sinha.

ACC Director Syed Iqbal Hossain filed the case with its integrated district office on Wednesday.

The investigating officer in that case Iqbal, in his final report, found evidence provided by Huda against Sinha “intentionally false.”

Earlier in March 2017, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed the case accusing Nazmul Huda of taking a bribe of Tk2.4 crore from businessman Mir Zahir Hossain at different times in exchange of awarding him five government contracts for construction works including road renovations worth about Tk30 crore.

His wife, Sigma Huda was also accused in the same case for assisting her husband in receiving the bribe, which was found deposited in an account of Khoborer Ontorale, a weekly newspaper owned by her. 

Later, Tk1 crore of the bribe money was transferred to HSBC bank accounts of their daughters.

In August 2007, a special court sentenced Huda and his wife to seven and three years of rigorous imprisonment, respectively. The former minister was also fined Tk2.5 crore, in default one more year of jail term.

The court also ordered the Tk2.4 crore of bribe money to be confiscated by state. 

The couple was acquitted in March 2011. 

However, in December 2014, the Appellate Division rejected the acquittal and asked the High Court to hold another hearing on their appeal.
