ACC grills Mayor Sayed Khokan’s APS Sheikh Quddus

Dhaka, Jan 21 – The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) yesterday grilled Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Mayor Sayed Khokon’s Assistant Personal Secretary (APS) Sheikh Kuddus and personal assistant (PA) of 11th Jatiya Sangsad Whip Shamsul Huq Chowdhury, Ezaz Chowdhury over amassing illegal money through casino business and some other issues.ACC Secretary Mohammad Dilwar told the reporters that they were summoned to find out the basis of specific allegations.
However, after the interrogation, Saeed Khokan’s APS Sheikh Kuddus has claimed that he has no illegal assets. In addition, he introduced himself to a journalist as a tax officer and the mayor’s PS no 2.
Again, Shamsul Huq Chowdhury’s PA Ezaz Chowdhury also claimed he doesn’t have any kind of illegal wealth. He also claimed to the journalists that he doesn’t have any connection with Shamsul Huq Chowdhury. He doesn’t even know what the casino is, as he claimed.
A team of ACC led by its Director Syed Iqbal Hossain grilled both the two yesterday from 10 am to 4 pm.
Earlier on 14 January, ACC Director Syed Iqbal Hossain issued separate summon notices to the APS of Sayeed Khokon and PA of Shamsul Huq Chowdhury to appear before the commission headquarters.
The two individuals were summoned as part of investigating allegations of amassing illegal money through casino business, tender manipulation and other irregularities. – Staff Reporter
