Former secretary of Rural Government and Cooperatives Division Kamal Uddin Talukder and some Palli Daridra Bimochan Foundation (PDBF) officials are now under Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) scanner on charge of power misuse.
Various allegations of irregularities including misuse of power, violation of the orders of court and ministry and breach of rules have been brought against Kamal Uddin Talukder.
The Local Government and Rural Development Ministry has already started primary informal investigation.
It has also planned to form a probe body soon to start final investigation.
Meanwhile, the ACC, the country's anti-graft watchdog, has already assigned its senior official for probing the allegations arisen against the former senior bureaucrat and his closed aides in the only state-owned micro-credit authority of the country.
The sources said misusing his authority, former secretary Kamal Uddin called some four meetings of PDBF board in only three months violating the High Court order and Rural Development and Cooperative Division (RDCD) State Minister's directives.
Of the meetings, the last two meetings were called in only seven days and the last one was called on the day of his post retirement leave (PRL) on November 6 this year.
