The Anti-Corruption Commission has unearthed huge illegal wealth of police superintendent Mizanur Rahman including four factories for the production of ‘fake fertilizers’.
ACC assistant director Faruk Ahmed unearthed Mizan’s illegal wealth during primary inquiries, said ACC officials.
During a previous probe done in 2012, ACC failed to dig evidence of accumulation of illegal wealth by Mizan, they said.
On Wednesday, they said, the ACC summoned Mizan to face interrogations over his illegal wealth accumulation on June 6.
They also said that Mizan built immovable properties at Gopalganj, Hmayetpur in Savar, Mirpur Mazar Road and at different places in Narsingdi.
They said that after his recent transfer to the Range Reserve Forces he built four factories, two at Tungipara, Gopalganj and two more at Hemayetpur for the production of ‘fake triple superphosphate’ fertilizers, better known as TSP.
They said that his four factories produce fake TSP worth Tk 1.4 crore per day.
They said that the investigator also found evidence of Mizan marketing fake TSP in sacks of original TSP.
They said that Mizan allegedly used at least 60 police personnel, including sub-inspectors, assistant sub-inspectors and constables to build his luxury house on an 84-decimal plot at Hemayetpur.
Mizan also used his subordinates to build two other houses, one at Mirpur and the other one at Narsingdi, they said.
Mizan used police vehicles for all his construction activities, they said.
They said that the police’s service rule prohibits the use of subordinates or police transports for such personal activities.
They said that in 2012, under pressure from ‘unknown quarters’ Mizan was given clean chit by the ACC and the investigation officers submitted reports saying no illegal wealth of Mizan was found.
They said that Mizan’s wife herself a government officer was involved with irregularities including running her own business in violation of the service rules.
New Age could not take Mizan’s comments as his phone was switched off.
On May 3, deputy inspector general of police Mizanur Rahman was interrogated by the ACC for amassing illegal wealth.
On January 9, Mizan was withdrawn from the DMP and attached to the police headquarters.
