The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has decided to launch an investigation into the corruption charges against former Inspector General of Police (IGP) Benazir Ahmed and his family.

ACC Secretary Khorsheda Yasmin told this to reporters at the ACC office in the capital’s Segunbagicha on Monday (April 22).

The ACC secretary said a three-member committee has been formed to investigate the allegations brought against the former IGP. After the investigation, the committee will submit its report to the commission.

Benazir Ahmed on Saturday (April 20) broke his silence three weeks after a national daily and a TV channel published sensational headlines alleging illicit assets in his possession.

In a video message posted on Facebook, Benazir vehemently denied the accusations, labeling them as false and defamatory.

Addressing the allegations made against him and his family, Benazir said: “I retired from the job almost two years ago and have been living a quiet life since then. However, certain groups on social media have persistently defamed me, spreading false information.”
