Update : 13 Mar 2014, 05:50 AM

The Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) is quizzing detained BNP Standing Committee Member Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain in a money laundering case.

Mosharraf was taken to the ACC headquarters in the capital’s Segunbaghichha from Ramna police station around 09:45am.

ACC Deputy Commissioner Ahsan Ali started interrogating Khandaker Mosharraf at 10am, Public Relations Officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya of the anti-graft watchdog told the Dhaka Tribune.

After quizzing, the BNP leader will be produced before a court around 12:00pm, Pranab added.

Earlier on Wednesday night, a team of Gulshan police station picked up Mosharraf from his Gulshan residence and handed over him to Ramna police station.

Nasim Anwar, a director of the ACC, filed the case earlier on February 6 in connection with money laundering charges for laundering Tk 9.53 crore in London while he had been the Health and Family Welfare Minister during the BNP-led four-party alliance rule.

The case statement reads that the BNP leader laundered around Tk9.53 crore to different countries when he was the minister for health and family planning from 2001 to 2006.

The case was filed under three provisions of the money laundering act-2002, 2009 and 2012, Rafat Ara Sultana, duty officer of Ramna police station earlier told the Dhaka Tribune.

Earlier on February 10, the High Court granted anticipatory bail to Khandaker Mosharraf for six weeks in the case.

Later on February 24, BNP leader Hossain's bail was cancelled by the Supreme Court.
