Staff Correspondent: A court in Dhaka has ordered to confiscate assets and freeze bank accounts of Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Md Mizanur Rahman.

Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of Senior Special Judges' Court passed the order after hearing on a petition on Thursday.

The petition was filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Director Md Manjur Morshed.

Earlier on June 12, ACC Director Md Manjur Morshed was given charge to investigate into the allegation of wealth amassed illegally by Mizan.

Previously, DIG Mizanur Rahman alleged that ACC Director Enamul Basir accepted bribes worth Tk40 lakh—in two phases— from him in exchange for information.

On June 10, the ACC suspended Basir and removed him from the probe team that was investigating the wealth of DIG Mizan, for leaking a probe report to DIG Mizan.

According to the media reports, DIG Mizan was engaged in misconduct and corruption while on duty. His alleged involvement in accumulating wealth from unknown sources was very evident.

On January 9 this year, Mizanur Rahman was withdrawn from his position due to allegations of abducting a young woman at gunpoint and forcing her to marry him.
