Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has started investigating Transcom Group Chairman and chief executive officer Latifur Rahman for allegedly earning money from unknown sources.
ACC public relation officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee told reporters on Thursday that the commission summoned him to appear before the ACC on October 18 for interrogation over alleged accumulation of illegal wealth.
ACC’s deputy director Nasir Uddin asked Latifur Rahman to appear before the commission’s headquarters with photocopies of his national identity card and passport at 10 am to face interrogation.
The ACC accuses him of amassing illegal wealth and money laundering.
ACC spokesperson Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee also said the commission started the inquiry against Latifur after receiving complaints that he and his family members accumulated huge illegal wealth by evading VAT, electricity bills and gas bills of different companies of the group.
ACC spokesman said there are also allegations of money laundering and government land grabbing against Latifur Rahman and his family members.
