The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has filed a case against Chandpur’s Laxmipur Model Union Parishad chairman Salim Khan over his alleged involvement in amassing illegal wealth worth Tk 36.93 crore and concealing information about his assets.

Ataur Rahman, investigation officer and assistant director of the ACC’s head office, lodged the case with the integrated district office-1 on Monday. 

ACC’s Public Relations Department confirmed the matter to Jago News.

Earlier on Sunday, ACC secretary Md Mahbub Hossain told reporters that an inquiry team, led by Ataur Rahman, found that Salim amassed wealth of Tk 36.93 crore beyond known sources of income.

He also said the commission approved the case against Selim Khan at its regular meeting and the commission will file a case against him within a day or two.

On April 26, a Dhaka court imposed a travel ban on Salim Khan, also proprietor and director of Shapla Media, following an ACC petition as the commission’s primary inquiry found that he accumulated illegal wealth.

Earlier, the ACC initiated an inquiry against Salim over his alleged involvement in an attempt to embezzle Tk 359 crore fund of the government in the process of land acquisition for the establishment of Chandpur Science and Technology University.
