Graft case against suspended DIG Mizan: Court defers charge framing hearing till Sept 30

A Dhaka court today deferred hearing on charge framing against suspended DIG Mizanur Rahman and three others in a corruption casetill September 30.

The other accused are: Mizan's wife Sohelia Anar Ratna, his brother Mahbubur Rahman, and nephew Mahmudul Hasan, a suspended sub-inspector of police.

Of them, Mizan and Mahmudul are now in jail, while Sohelia and Mahmudur are on the run.

Judge Al Asad Md Asifuzzaman of the Special Judge Court-6 of Dhaka passed the order after Mizan's lawyer submitted a petition seeking adjournment of the charge hearing.

On January 30, Deputy Director of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC)Monjur Morshed, also the investigation officer (IO) of the case, submitted the charge sheet against Mizan and three others.

On June 24, the ACC filed the case with its Integrated District Office in Dhaka against Mizan and three others on charges of amassing over Tk 3 crore beyond known sources of income.

According to the case statement, Mizan submitted his wealth statement to the ACC in August of 2018, citing that he has Tk 1.56 crore of wealth -- Tk 46.26 lakh worth of moveable property and Tk 1.1 crore worth of immoveable property.

But he concealed the information about the remaining amount -- about Tk 3.07 crore -- and kept the money in different forms under his wife and relatives' names.

Mizan has also been charged in a Tk 40 lakh bribery case.
