A Dhaka court Wednesday set August 29 for submitting probe report in a case filed by Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) against suspended Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of police Mizanur Rahman for amassing illegal wealth, reports BSS.

 Today was set for submitting report in the case, but Dhaka Metropolitan Session Judge KM Imrul Kayes had to reset the date as investigation officer failed to submit the report. The court on July 2 scrapped a bail plea of Mizanur Rahman and sent him to jail in the case. Earlier on July 1, police took DIG Mizanur Rahman into custody after High Court scrapped his plea for anticipatory bail in the case. 

High Court division bench comprising Justice Obaidul Hassan and Justice SM Kuddus Zaman passed the order, asking the police officials present at the courtroom to take Mizanur into custody immediately.

“He has tarnished the image of police completely. We have seen on TV that he has given a desperate statement on paying bribe,” the court said at the time. ACC director Monjur Morshed filed the case on June 24 against Mizanur, his wife Sohelia Anar Ratna, brother Mahbubur Rahman and nephew and police sub inspector Mahmudul Hasan for concealing information about wealth of Taka 3.7 crore and amassing illegal wealth of Taka 3.28 crore.
