Now suspended, Mizan was accused by ACC of amassing illegal wealth

A Dhaka court rejected a bail petition of suspended Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police, Mizanur Rahman, in a case filed concerning a transaction of Tk40 lakh as bribe.

Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of Senior Special Judge’s Court in Dhaka denied bail after the DIG’s lawyer, Ehsanul Haque Samaji, submitted a petition seeking bail on Wednesday. 

ACC Public Prosecutor of Dhaka Metropolitan Session Judge Court, Taposh Kumar Pal, confirmed the matter.

The court also set October 2 as the date for the police to submit to the court, the next report on the case. 

On July 26, Mizan was suspended a day after being prosecuted by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) for amassing illegal wealth.

The ACC filed a case accusing Mizan, his wife, brother, and nephew, of the same crime on July 22.

The anti-graft watchdog said it found evidence of his illegal assets worth over Tk30.7 crore.

It also summoned the police officer to its headquarters on July 1 for questioning over giving Tk40 lakh in bribes to ACC Director Enamul Basir.

Mizan had claimed that Basir, who was in charge of the investigation, had taken bribes from him promising that he would be given a clean sheet.

Basir, now suspended, also divulged information during the investigation, according to ACC officials.

Earlier, Mizan was withdrawn from Dhaka Metropolitan Police as its additional commissioner when allegations surfaced against him of abducting a woman and forcing her to marry him.
