The High Court upheld a lower court verdict that sentenced sacked Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of police Mizanur Rahman to 14 years’ imprisonment in a case filed for amassing wealth beyond known source.

The High Court bench of Justice Md Kamrul Hossain Mollah passed the order on Wednesday (February 28).

Advocate Khurshid Alam Khan stood for the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).

Dhaka Special Judge’s Court-6 Judge Manzurul Islam on June 21 last year sentenced Mizanur Rahman to jail for 14 years.

Besides, Mizan’s wife, brother and nephew were sentenced to seven years’ imprisonment each in the case.

According to the case statement, the ACC found that Mizan concealed information of wealth worth Tk3.28 crore in his wealth statement.

After investigation, the ACC submitted a charge sheet against them on January 30, 2020.
