The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has summoned Bangladeshi lawmaker Mohammad Shahid Islam alias Papul’s wife, Salina Islam, and sister-in-law Jesmin Akter Prodhan, for allegedly assisting him in human trafficking and amassing illegal wealth. 

Separate notices, signed by ACC Deputy Director Md Salahuddin, were sent to the two, asking them to appear at the commission headquarters on July 22 for questioning. 

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

According to the notice, Papul’s wife and sister-in-law have been summoned to record their statements as part of the ongoing investigation against Papul.

Meanwhile, ACC imposed a travel ban on the two on June 17.

On June 25, Papul was sent to the central prison of Kuwait on human trafficking and money laundering charges.

The attorney general of Kuwait decided to imprison the Bangladeshi MP for 21 days in the central prison.

Earlier, the ACC sought income tax documents of Papul, his family, and his sister-in-law from the National Board of Revenue (NBR).

On February 26, the ACC launched an inquiry against Papul over allegations of his amassing Tk1,400 crore by human trafficking to Kuwait and other countries.

Deputy director of ACC, Mohammad Salauddin, sought the documents from NBR in connection with the MP’s alleged involvement in money laundering and accumulating illegal wealth.

The ACC also served a notice to the Election Commission to get the electoral affidavit of MP Shahid and his wife Selina Islam.

The ACC earlier requested the Special Branch of Police, seeking restrictions on foreign travel of MP Shahid and his family.

Earlier, on June 9, the ACC served notices to MP Shahid Islam and members of his family, seeking their wealth statements.

ACC Assistant Director M Salahuddin served the notices to Shahid, his wife, lawmaker Selina Islam, their daughter Kazi Wafa Islam, and Selina’s sister, Jemin Akter.

They were asked to submit copies of their passports, NIDs, TINs, and income tax returns within 15 days.
