ACC begins probe into irregularities in IU


The Anti-Corruption Commission has started an investigation into allegations of embezzlement of Tk 6 crore under the mega project of Islamic University in Kushtia.

ACC started probing the issue three months after an anonymous letter was sent to the university administration and the ACC Kushtia district office regarding the embezzlement.

A letter signed by ACC Kushtia’s assistant director and investigating officer M Saidur Rahman, was issued in this regard on Thursday night.


An allegation of embezzling Tk 6 crore 25 lakh from third phase development work of the university’s second administration building under the mega project was brought against some unnamed unscrupulous people including IU acting chief engineer, executive engineer, supervising engineer, project director, former and current leaders of the university BCL unit submitting two fake bills.

ACC Kushtia district office sought information from the university administration on the related projects for the purpose of investigation.
