A couple accused the IO of demanding bribes on a couple of occasions

The High Court (HC) on Monday summoned Anti- Corruption Commission (ACC) assistant director Alamgir Hossain to explain the allegations of demanding a bribe from the accused.

A High Court division bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice Justice SM Mozibur Rahman passed the order, asking the ACC official to appear before the court at 10am on November 7 and submit his explanation in writing.

"The court also issued a rule in this regard and asked the ACC to keep the probe suspended against the people that filed the writ in this regard, till holding a hearing on the rule," Deputy Attorney General AKM Amin Uddin Manik told BSS.

Advocate Md Kamal Hossain took part in the hearing for the petitioner, while Md Asif Hossain argued for the ACC.

Deputy Attorney General AKM Amin Uddin Manik said ACC assistant director Alamgir Hossain was the investigation officer (IO) of a case against Md Abdul Quddus Hawlader and his wife Mahinur Begum. Quddus, Pirojepur district registrar, and his wife are accused of amassing illegal wealth of TK90.12 lakh and concealing information about a wealth of TK24.70 lakh.

The couple accused the IO of demanding bribes on a couple of occasions and filed separate pleas with the ACC in this regard.

A writ was filed later with the High Court by them.
