The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has imposed a travel ban on Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Director Mahbubul Anam.

The anti-graft watchdog asked immigration authorities to stop Anam and his family from leaving the country, as it primarily found bribery allegations against him to be true.

The ACC sent a letter to the Special Superintendent of immigration police in this regard on Thursday, ACC spokesperson Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya told Dhaka Tribune.

In the letter, ACC Deputy Director Monjurul Alam (Inquiry) stated that Anam had been trying to flee the country along with his family and must be barred from doing so to ensure a fair investigation into the allegations brought against him.

The letter said the allegation of bribery and money laundering over Tk61.54 crore against Anam had been primarily found to be true during investigation, adding that it was necessary to record Anam's statement in this regard.

Earlier on September 25, ACC sent a letter to the BCB director seeking his wealth information.

In its investigation, the commission found that Aman accumulated assets worth Tk615,482,944 crore illegally, including movable assets worth Tk47,798,000 crore and immovable assets worth Tk567,684,944.

Monjurul Alam said the BCB director was allegedly involved in tender manipulation and recruitment irregularities procedure.
