The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) grilled BNP’s standing committee member Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury over allegations of money laundering and amassing wealth illegally.
A team of the anti-graft body led by Deputy Director Selina Akhter started interrogated him at ACC headquarter in the capital.
Earlier on Tuesday, the ACC served a notice to former minister Khasru, his wife Tahera Alam and his brother-in-law Golam Sarwar asking to appear at the commission’s Segunbagicha headquarters on March 1.
The commission earlier summoned Khasru twice, but he went to the court challenging the commission notices.
Recently, the High Court declared the ACC notice valid.
The commission initiated the inquiry against Khasru in 2018 following an allegation that he was involved in money laundering and invested in a five-star hotel business hiding his identity.
