The Anti-Corruption Commission has sent a letter to the Bangladesh Financial Intelligence Unit (BFIU) to investigate properties abroad owned by former Inspector General of Police (IGP) Benazir Ahmed, his wife and daughters.

While talking to reporters on Wednesday, ACC lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan said that the commission has received information on huge moveable and immovable properties owned by Benazir, his wife, and his daughters in different districts in the country.

In this context, the anti-corruption watchdog suspects that the former IGP may have laundered money abroad, Khan said.

On this ground, the ACC has sent a letter to the BFIU, requesting it to send a Mutual Legal Assistance Request (MLAR) to know whether Benazir has any assets in Dubai, Canada, the USA, and elsewhere, said the ACC lawyer.
