Suspended DIG Mizan lands in jail


Staff Reporter:

A court here on Tuesday sent suspended Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of police Mizanur Rahman to jail in a case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).

Judge of KM Imrul Kayes of Dhaka Senior Special Court passed the order after police produced him before the court in the case.

On Monday, the High Court rejected a petition filed by the DIG seeking anticipatory bail in the case and handed him over to Shahbagh Police Station.

ACC Director Manzur Morshed filed the case against Mizan, his wife Sohelia Anar Ratna, nephew sub-inspector Mahmudul Hasan and younger brother Mahabubur Rahman on June 24 last.

They were accused of accumulating wealth worth Tk 302,868,000 illegally and concealing information of assets amounting to Tk 30,705,000.

A private TV channel reported recently that Mizan gave Tk 40 lakh to Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Director Khandaker Enamul Basir to get clean chit in a corruption case.

DIG Mizan was an additional commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP). He was withdrawn on January 9 last year following the allegation of threatening a female news presenter of a private television channel.

He had also reportedly married a woman forcibly and tortured her. Mizan allegedly picked the 25-year-old woman up in July, 2017 and then forcibly married her.

He had also implicated her in a false case whereby she was arrested and remained in jail for three weeks.unb
