DIG Mizan sent to jail
A Dhaka court has sent Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of police Mizanur Rahman, who has been suspended earlier, 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 today, a day after he was handed over to Ramna police.
Earlier yesterday, the High Court asked the police to arrest him the graft case, rejecting his bail plea.
ACC Director Monzur Morshed filed the case against Mizan, his wife Sohelia Anar Ratna, nephew Sub-Inspector Mahmudul Hasan and younger brother Mahabubur Rahman on June 24.
On May 3 last year, the ACC interrogated the DIG in connection with accumulation of illegal wealth.
DIG Mizan, former additional commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, was withdrawn on January 9 last year after being accused of threatening a female news presenter of a private television channel.
He was suspended on June 25 this year
