The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Monday approved a charge-sheet against former minister Barrister Nazmul Huda and his wife Sigma Huda in a corruption case. 

ACC Public Relations Officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya told UNB that the case was filed on June 18, 2008 with Motijheel Police Station for taking bribe over maintenance of the Bangabandhu Multipurpose Bridge.

ACC Assistant Director Md Monirul Islam was the investigation officer on the case.

Barrister Nazmul Huda, then communication minister and chairman of Jamuna Multipurpose Bridge Authority during the BNP-Jamaat tenure, was summoned on February 24 and appeared at the ACC office accordingly, Pranab.

He was accused of illegally taking Tk 600,000 from a firm engaged in running and maintaining the Bangabandhu Bridge between 2004 and 2006. 

The ACC resumed the investigation after a stay on the case was withdrawn as per a court order, Pranab said.

Nazmul Huda demanded Tk 50,000 per month in bribe from M/S Marganet One Ltd, the firm tasked with maintaining the Bangabandhu Bridge, according to the case.

He asked the amount to be deposited in the bank account held under the name ‘Khoborer Ontorale,’ a newspaper owned by his wife Sigma Huda, it said.    

The company proposed paying Tk 25,000 per month, citing losses in their business, which Nazmul Huda agreed to. 

The contractors then paid Tk 600,000 through 19 cheques, according to the case.
