The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has questioned businessman Anwar Alam on charges of embezzling government plots.

ACC Director Sheikh Mohammad Fanafilla and Deputy Director Subhas Dutta jointly conducted the questioning at its integrated district office 1 on Sunday.

According to the commission, Anwar Alam registered several government plots at various important places including Gulshan and Dhanmondi in his own name through forgery with the help of the officials of the Rajdhani Unnayan Kartripakkha (Rajuk) and Public Works Department (PWD).

The commission collected records of fraudulency from the Rajuk and PWD while several individuals have been questioned in this regard.

As part of the investigation, the commission took a statement from BNS Group of Companies Chairman MNH Bulu for purchasing 1.3 bighas and 6 decimal lands at the commercial area of Gulshan 2 from Anwar Alam.

Earlier, the ACC received a number of graft allegations, including income tax dodging and construction of a building in the capital without the approval of city authority, against the BNS Group chairman.

According to the allegations received by the ACC, Bulu built BNS Centre at the city’s Uttara Sector 7 without the approval of Rajuk and swindled about Tk22 crore of customers’ money by selling the properties.
