Bribery case: Suspended ACC director Basir denied bail
The High Court today refused to grant bail to suspended director of Anti-Corruption Commission Khandaker Enamul Basir in a case filed over transaction of Tk 40 lakh as bribe.
The court, however, issued a rule asking the ACC and government to explain in two weeks why Enamul Basir should not be granted bail in the case.
The bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and Justice KM Hafizul Alam issued the rule following a petition filed by Enamul seeking bail in the case.
On January 5 this year Enamul Basir submitted the bail petition to the HC through his lawyer, claiming he is innocent and the ACC could not recover the money from his possession.
On July 16 last year, ACC Director Sheikh Md Fanafillah filed the case with the ACC's Integrated District Office in Dhaka under the money laundering prevention act, on charges of taking Tk 40 lakh in bribe from suspended deputy inspector general of police Mizanur Rahman.
