The bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman directed the ACC to inform the court within a month

The High Court on Wednesday inquired about steps taken over an application demanding an investigation into the graft, money laundering, and other allegations against Chittagong Water Supply and Sewerage Authority (CWASA) Managing Director AKM Fazlullah.

The bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman directed the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) to inform the court within a month.

The court issued the directive after Md Hasan Ali, a resident of Momin road in Chattogram city, filed a writ petition challenging the inactivity of ACC and proposal of re-appointment of the managing director.

Advocate Ikram Uddin Khan Chowdhury stood for the writ petitioner while Advocate Md Nowsher Ali Molla represented the ACC.

Fazlullah, 80, retired in 1998 after serving full-time as executive engineer of CWASA.

In 2009, he was appointed as CWASA chairman for one year and was later appointed as its chief for three months. His tenure was extended several times and is scheduled to end on October 31.

On September 7, a CWASA board meeting suggested extension of his appointment for the next three years.
