The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) yesterday filed a case against a class III employee of Rajdhani Unnayan Kartripkkha (Rajuk) and his wife for amassing Tk 73 lakh worth of wealth beyond their known source of income.
ACC deputy assistant director Silvia Ferdous filed the case with Ramna Model Police Station against Hasmat Ali, work superintendent of Rajuk's Purbachal project, and his wife Mahmuda Aktar. According to the first information report (FIR), Hasmat had mentioned his wife Mahmuda as a businessperson in the wealth statement to legalise his illegal wealth.
ACC in its investigation, however, found that Mahmuda was a housewife and there was no existence of any business institution written on the wealth statement.
On December 12, 2016, ACC issued a notice asking Mahmuda to submit her wealth statement since the commission had initially found inconsistency in her earnings and amassed wealth. In her wealth statement submitted on January 3, 2017, Mahmuda mentioned that the amount of her non-movable wealth was Tk 2,20,03,000 and moveable wealth Tk 6,30,000. She showed Tk 45.37 lakh as liability.
During investigation, ACC found that she had amassed Tk 73,23,160 beyond known source of income.
