Staff Correspondent | Published: 00:30, Feb 24,2021


The Anti-Corruption Commission summoned Bangladesh Nationalist Party standing committee member Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury, his wife and brother-in-law for interrogation over allegations of money laundering and amassing wealth illegally.

The commission deputy director Selina Akhter served a notice to former minister Khasru, his wife Tahera Alam and his brother-in-law Golam Sarwar asking to appear at the commission’s Segunbagicha headquarters on March 1, said ACC director for public relations Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee on Tuesday.

The commission earlier summoned Khasru twice, but he went to the court challenging the commission notices.

Recently, the High Court declared the ACC notice valid.

The commission initiated the inquiry against Khasru in 2018 following an allegation that he was involved in money laundering and invested in a five-star hotel business hiding his identity.
