Staff Correspondent: A probe body of Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has found that its suspended Director Khandaker Enamul Bachhir took Tk 40 lakh as bribe with the promise of exonerating suspended Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Mizanur Rahman of all charges.

At one stage, Khandaker Enamul Bachhir also wanted to return the bribe money to Mizanur Rahman.

A high level source in the ACC confirmed this to risingbd.

Meanwhile, ACC filed a case on Tuesday against its suspended Director Khandaker Enamul Basir and suspended DIG Mizanur Rahman for exchanging Tk 40 lakh as bribe.

ACC Director Khandaker Enamul Bachhir has been temporarily suspended for leaking confidential information contained in a probe report to DIG Mizanur Rahman, who is accused of amassing illegal wealth.

DIG Mizanur Rahman alleged to the media that Enamul Bachir had accepted Tk. 40 lakh from him in two phases in exchange of information.

The commission initiated a probe into the wealth accumulated by Mizanur Rahman after he was relieved of duties last year for allegedly torturing a woman. Enamul Bachir was a member of the ACC probe team that investigated the DIG’s wealth.

Soon after raising the bribery allegation, the commission formed another three-member probe committee, led by its secretary Md Delwar Bakth, to investigate the matter.
