Anticorruption Commission Tuesday pressed charges with Dhaka CMM's Court against former state minister Lutfozzaman Babar, BNP senior joint secretary general Tarique Rahman, Basundhara Group owner Ahmed Akbar Sobhan and five others, reports Deputy assistant director ACC Rupak Kumar Saha submitted the chargesheet.

Babar, Tarique and their accomplice Miah Nuruddin Apu took Tk 1 crore in bribe. Besides Babar himself took Tk 20 crore bribe in eight cheques.

The accused persons kept Tk 20 crore in an account of Prime Bank owned by businessman Kazi Salimul Haque. Salimul Haque has also been made an accused in the case in which 28 persons have been listed as witnesses.
