The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has sought wealth information of expelled Jubo Mohila League leader Shamima Noor Papia and her husband from sixty national and foreign banks.

The anti-graft body issued a letter yesterday signed by ACC Deputy Director Shaheen Ara Mumtaz, which has been sent to the managing directors of fifty-nine local banks and the chief executive of Bangladesh Financial Intelligence Unit (BFIU).

ACC Director (Media) Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune.

ACC has also sent letters to the Bank of Thailand and the Central Bank of Malaysia requesting information about the couple's bank statements.

Earlier on March 2, ACC has asked The Westin Dhaka to provide information on Shamima Noor Papia’s stay in the hotel.

In a separate letter, signed by ACC Deputy Director Shaheen Ara Momtaz, the Westin management was asked to disclose information on how many days Papia had stayed there and how much cost she had incurred over hotel expenses.

The hotel administration has also asked to declassify information about the people who had visited Papia during her stay in the hotel.

On February 27, ACC moved to probe allegations of amassing illegal wealth by Papia, with an investigation officer being assigned to probe the allegations.

Earlier on February 22, Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) apprehended Papia and her husband Mofizur Rahman Sumon, along with their accomplices, at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (HSIA) and recovered counterfeit banknotes, foreign currencies and hard cash.

RAB said Papia was the ringleader of a criminal gang and was involved in trading counterfeit currencies. RAB also revealed that she was involved in illegal arms and drug dealing. She is also believed to be involved in the sex trade at luxurious hotel suites.

Jubo Mohila League, an associate body of the ruling Awami League for young women, subsequently expelled Papia as its Narsingdi unit general secretary for breaching organizational discipline.
