Delwar Hossain was caught while taking a Tk60,000 bribe

A team of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has caught an executive engineer of the National Housing Authority (NHA) while taking a bribe in Dinajpur town. 

ACC arrested Dinajpur NHA executive engineer Md Delwar Hossain on Sunday night. 

NHA Land Allotment Committee directed Dinajpur NHA to allot a house to one Najmunnahar. However, she did not get the allotment even after one and a half years. 

Regarding this matter, Najmunnahar filed a complaint with the ACC against Executive Engineer Delwar and Sub-Assistant Engineer Md Abdul Wadud for harassing her and demanding Tk150,000 from her for the allotment of the house. 

Following the complaint, a team of the ACC-- led by Deputy Director of Dinajpur ACC Abu Hena Ashiqur Rahman-- conducted a drive and caught Delwar while he was taking Tk60,000 bribe from Najmunnahar at his office in 8:30pm. 

A case has been filed against him regarding this incident.
