A court here on Thursday sent the nephew of suspended Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of police Mizanur Rahman to jail in a case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).

Judge KM Imrul Kayes of Dhaka Senior Special Court passed the order after rejecting a bail plea of the accused Mahmudul Hasan, sub-inspector of Dhaka Kotwali Police Station.

Earlier, Mahmudul surrendered before the court and sought bail. DIG Mizan was also sent to jail on Tuesday in the graft case.

ACC Director Manzur Morshed filed the case against Mizan, his wife Sohelia Anar Ratna, nephew sub-inspector Mahmudul Hasan and younger brother Mahabubur Rahman on June 24. Mizan was suspended the next day.

They were accused of accumulating wealth worth Tk 302,868,000 illegally and concealing information of assets amounting to Tk 30,705,000.

A private TV channel reported recently that Mizan gave Tk 40 lakh to Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Director Khandaker Enamul Basir to get clean chit in the corruption case.

DIG Mizan was an additional commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP). He was withdrawn on January 9 last year following the allegation of threatening a female news presenter of a private television channel.

He had also reportedly married a woman forcibly and tortured her. Mizan allegedly picked the 25-year-old woman up in July, 2017 and then forcibly married her.

He had also implicated her in a false case whereby she was arrested and remained in jail for three weeks.
