The Anti-Corruption Commission on Sunday filed two cases against Maruf Nizam, a government official and his wife for hiding information on their wealth in the statements to the commission and for owning illegal wealth.

The commission’s deputy director Abul Kalam Azad filed a case accusing Maruf, younger brother of former BNP lawmaker Sarwar Jamal Nizam and accused in the case of the abduction and killing of businessman Jamaluddin Chowdhury, of hiding information on wealth of Tk 8,29,518 in the statement submitted to the commission.

He was also accused of possessing wealth of Tk 23,39,248 beyond his known sources of income in the case filed with the Double Mooring police. The commission’s deputy director Jahangir Alam filed the other case with the same police station accusing the principal officer of the Mercantile Marine Department, Captain Habibur Rahman, and his wife, Kohinur Sultana, of amassing wealth of Tk 2,14,53,274 through abuse of power. The army-led joint forces arrested Habibur at his office soon after the declaration of the state of emergency for his alleged involvement in corruption. Maruf has been in hiding for a few months.
