The Anti-Corruption Commission on Thursday asked the Rural Development and Cooperatives Division’s former secretary Prosanta Kumar Roy to submit his wealth statement to the commission.

The commission’s deputy director Jahangir Alam served a notice in this regard asking Prosanta to submit details of his moveable and immoveable properties by 21 days, said the commission’s public relations officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee.

He said that the commission took the decision after its primary inquiry found Prosanta’s expenditures was higher than his earning.

Earlier on October 29, the commission interrogated the former secretary at ACC head office over his alleged involvement in accumulation of illegal wealth.

The commission launched an inquiry against the retired bureaucrat last year for his illegal accumulation of wealth during his job.

Prosanta reportedly received a large sum of money from Denim Palomar and Denim Export Limited’s managing director living as an expatriate in Australia, the public relations officer said.
