Desk Report

The Anticorruption Commission will ask BNP joint secretary general Goyeshwar Chandra Roy to submit a wealth statement to the graft watchdog, an official said Monday.

"After completion of all procedure, the ACC will send a notice to Goyeshwar in a day or two," said ACC director general (administration) Col Hanif Iqbal in a news briefing.

Besides, the ACC will serve notices on Road and Highways former executive engineer Md Abdul Azim Joarder and his wife Selina Joarder seeking statements of their wealth.

In another development, Iqbal said, investigators have been permitted to press charges in four corruption cases against former prime minister Khaleda Zia's nephew Shahrin Islam Tuhin, Awami League presidium member Sajeda Chowdhury's son Md Shahadab Akbar, former manager of Islami Bank's Shahjadpur branch in Sirajganj district Abdus Sabur Khan and Fatikchhari upazila education officer Md Nuruzzaman.

The commission has also decided to file cases against 21 people, including two Roads and Highways executive engineers, on charges of embezzling Tk 174.35 crore from Meghna and Meghna-Gomati Bridge toll plaza.
