The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Sunday sent separate letters seeking the wealth information of four government officials and four contractors as part of an investigation into allegations of amassing wealth through various irregularities and casino business. 

ACC Director (Public Relations) Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya confirmed that separate notices signed by ACC Director Syed Iqbal Hossain were sent to the individuals concerned.

The government officials who have been served the notice are Youth and Sports Ministry Joint-Chief Md Sazzadul Islam, Deputy Assistant Engineer Ali Akbar of Public Works Circle-4, Food Inspector Md Khorshed Alam of Ghatail in Tangail and Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Officer Sheikh Kuddus Ahmed.

The others the ACC sent notices to are Moazzem Hossain Sentu, Zakir Hossain, and Abdus Salam, who are contractors in Sreenagar, Munshiganj, and Nur-ur-Rashid Chowdhury Ejaz, a contractor in Patiya, Chittagong.

According to the notice, the aforementioned government officials and contractors have 21 working days to submit their wealth information to the anti-graft commission.

So far, the ACC has filed 22 cases over the casino business.  

Anti-casino operations of law enforcement agencies started on September 22 last year. The ACC launched an investigation into the acquisition of illegal assets through casinos later that month, on September 30.
