Judge’s question: Is DIG Mizan more powerful than ACC?

The top court has reprimanded the Anti-Corruption Commission over its failure to arrest Deputy Inspector General of Police Mizanur Rahman, who admitted to paying off an official probing into his wealth.
The four-member bench of the Appellate Division led by Chief Justice Syed Mahmud Hossain raised the matter while questioning the competence of the ACC on Sunday during a hearing on the bail for Hall-Mark Group Chairman Jasmine Islam in an embezzlement case.
The anti-graft commission's lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan was seeking leave to appeal the bail granted to Jasmine by the High Court.
Mizan, who was withdrawn as additional commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police following a marital scandal in January 2018, is currently being investigated for amassing illegal wealth. He recently made headlines after revealing that he bribed ACC Director Enamul Basir to evade             liability.
