The suspended official stands accused of taking bribes to clear a police DIG of charges

The High Court on Thursday has turned down a bail petition by suspended ACC director Khandaker Enamul Basir in a case filed over the Tk40 lakh bribery scandal. 

The virtual HC bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice SM Mozibur Rahman passed the order. 

Advocate Ruhul Kuddus Kajol stood for the petitioner while Deputy Attorney General AKM Amin Uddin and advocate Khurshid Alam represented the state and the ACC respectively. 

On April 29, Judge Sheikh Nazmul Alam of Dhaka Special Judge Court-4 rejected the bail petition of Enamul. 

On June 16, the suspended Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) director filed a petition seeking bail in the case. 

Earlier on July 16, 2019, Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Director Sheikh Mohammad Fanafillah filed the case over a bribery scandal.

On July 22, 2019, ACC arrested Enamul from his Darus Salam residence in the city for taking bribes from police's Deputy Inspector General Mizanur Rahman.

A private TV channel had reported that suspended police officer Mizanur Rahman gave Tk40 lakh to Basir to get a clean chit in a corruption case filed against him.

Enamul was suspended on June 10 for allegedly leaking information, a breach of his job discipline. 

Mizan was formally arrested in the case on July 21. 

DIG Mizan was an additional commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP). He was withdrawn on January 9, last year following the allegation of threatening a female news presenter of a private television channel.
