A Dhaka court on Tuesday sent suspended director of Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), Khandaker Enamul Basir, to jail in a case filed against him on charge of accepting four million taka in bribes.
The court of senior special judge KM Emrul Kayes passed the order after rejecting his bail petition, reports news agency UNB.
Advocate Kabir Hossain, a counsel of Enamul, filed the bail petition.
ACC director Sheikh Mohammad Fanafillah, also the case's investigation officer, requested the court to keep the accused incarcerated until the end of the investigation.
On Monday, the ACC arrested Enamul from his Darus Salam residence in the city for taking bribe from police's deputy inspector general Mizanur Rahman.
Fanafillah filed the case with Dhaka-1 coordinated district office under the ACC on Tuesday.
A private TV channel reported recently that Mizan gave four million taka to Enamul to get clean chit in a corruption case.
Enamul was suspended on 10 June for allegedly leaking information, a breach of his job discipline.
Besides, suspended DIG Mizan was shown arrested in the case on 21 July.
