Dhaka, Dec 21 (UNI) Bangladesh's Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed a case against former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia's nephew for amassing wealth beyond known sources of income and concealing information about it.

Assistant Director Taufiqul Islam filed the case against Shahrin Islam Tuhin with Gulshan Police Station, accusing him of illegally accumulating Tk 2.9 crore and concealing information about Tk 1.43 crore wealth.

The complainant in the first information report (FIR) said Tuhin in his wealth statement showed Tk 2.5 lakh ''fake'' business investment, the Daily Star reported.

The BNP chairperson's nephew submitted Tk 4.66 crore wealth statement on July 22 and also showed property purchased in his own name as business investment.

The FIR said Tuhin, in the statement, concealed and gave false information by showing lower expenditure and lower price rates. He also did not mention wealth he possessed in his own name and in the name of his family.

The cases were filed yesterday under sections 26 (2) and 27 (1) of the ACC Act and 15 d (5) of the emergency power rules.
