On September 1, 2008, the ACC served a notice to Ishraque to submit his wealth information but he did not comply

A Dhaka court on Monday acquitted BNP-backed mayoral candidate for Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Ishraque Hossain in a graft case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).

Judge Shaikh Nazmul Alam of Dhaka's Special Judge's Court-4 gave the verdict as allegations brought against him were not proved in the case.

Ishraque Hossain said: “I am happy with the verdict.”

On January 15, the same court framed the charges against Ishraque, rejecting a discharge petition filed by the accused.

On September 1, 2008, the ACC served a notice to Ishraque, son of former Dhaka city mayor late Sadeque Hossain Khoka, to submit his wealth information to the anti-graft body.

As he did not comply with the notice, former assistant director Shamsul Alam of the ACC filed a case against Ishraque with Ramna police station on August 29, 2010. 

On December 6, 2018, ACC Deputy Director Jahangir Hossain, also the investigation officer of the case, submitted a charge sheet to the Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court.
