The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has arrested previously suspended assistant tax commissioner, Mezbah Uddin Ahmed, in a case filed for embezzling over Tk3 crore in Khulna.

Mezbah was nabbed from his residence in Boyra residential area in the city Wednesday night, confirmed ACC Deputy Director Md Nazmul Hasan of Khulna district.

Earlier in the day, District ACC Assistant Director Md Shaon Miya filed a case against Mezbah, the suspended assistant tax commissioner (Bagerhat circle), for embezzling Tk3,47,34,419 of taxpayers’ money.

According to the case statement, Mezbah exploited his position as an assistant tax commissioner, and embezzled taxpayers’ money instead of depositing it to the government treasury.

On July 21, Khulna’s Deputy Tax Commissioner Khondokar Md Tarif Uddin filed a complaint with the ACC at their district office.

On May 19, the National Board of Revenue suspended Mezbah after a complaint was filed against him in the High Court over allegations of embezzlement.
