ACC grills BNP leader Amir Khasru on graft allegations

ACC grills BNP leader Amir Khasru on graft allegations

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) today interrogated BNP standing committee member Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury for allegedly acquiring illegal wealth.

ACC inquiry officer Selima Akter questioned Kashru for around two hours starting from 10.30 am at the ACC headquarters in the capital, said sources at the national anti-graft agency.

After facing interrogation, the BNP leader told reporters that the ACC earlier asked him to appear before the Commission to face its questioning and he responded to the questions of the ACC today.

Earlier, on August 16 in 2018, ACC director Kazi Shafiqul sent a notice to Khasru asking him to appear at the ACC head office on August 28 of the same year to face the ACC questioning over allegations of money laundering, illegal transaction of money and accumulation of illegal wealth.

But, on September 3 in 2018, he submitted a writ petition before the High Court challenging the ACC notice.

On September 16 in 2018, a High Court division bench comprising Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice KM Hafizul Alam rejected his plea.

The national anti-graft watchdog on August 6, 2019 issued two separate notices upon Khasru and his wife asking them to submit their wealth statements to the Commission.
On February 23 this year, the ACC summoned Khasru and his wife Tahera Khasru.

Earlier, on October 4 in 2018, the ACC imposed a travel ban on the couple.
