Fake `ACC commissioner` held

Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has detained one person named Md Mosabbir Hossain, identifying himself as ACC Commissioner A F M Aminul Islam, on charges of extortion.

A team, led by ACC director Mir Joynul Abedin Shibli, detained him from Bangabandhu Avenue branch of Agrani Bank located in the capital on Thursday (August 13).

According to the ACC, there is a clear allegation that one person is demanding money from various drug companies and other firms in name of publishing magazine of the ACC, using pad containing ACC monogram and name, signature and designation of one of its commissioners. Being informed about the matter, the anti-graft watchdog formed a team with its director Mir Joynul Abedin Shibli as the head.

Acting on a tiff-off, the ACC team ambushed near the Agrani Bank and challenged Mosabbir when he entered the bank. Later, he was detained immediately.

In 2017, the ACC arrested Md Nazrul Islam Nayeem on the similar allegation and filed a case against him with Rampura police station. The case is still pending.

ACC’s deputy director A K M Mahbubur Rahman filed a case against Md Nazrul Islam Nayeem and Md Mosabbir with Paltan police station.
