ACC summons MP Papul’s wife


The Anti-Corruption Commission has summoned Lakshmipur lawmaker MP Shahid Islam Papul's wife reserved seat MP Selina Islam and sister-in law Jasmin Akhter.

Selina Islam is also an independent lawmaker of a reserved seat for women. 

"For proper investigation into the allegations against Kazi Papul, it is necessary to listen to what Selina Islam and Jasmin Akhter have to say in this regard," said an ACC notice.

The ACC said Papul allegedly allocated loans to several clients of the NRB Commercial Bank unlawfully and was involved in money laundering activities.

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Sunday summoned Lakshmipur-2 constituency lawmaker Md Shahid Islam alias Kazi Papul's wife Selina Islam and her sister Jasmin Prodhan to appear before it on July 22.

Selina Islam is also an independent lawmaker of a reserved seat for women. 

"For proper investigation into the allegations against Kazi Papul, it is necessary to listen to what Selina Islam and Jasmin Prodhan have to say in this regard," said an ACC notice. 

According to the ACC notice, Papul allegedly allocated loans to several clients of the NRB Commercial Bank illegally and was involved in money laundering activities. He also has hundreds of crores of taka earned from unknown sources. 

"If Selina and Jasmin fail to appear at the ACC headquarter on July 22, it would mean that they do not have anything to say regarding the accusations against Papul," reads the notice.

On June 10, ACC served notices to lawmaker Mohammad Shahid Islam, who was detained in Kuwait, his wife lawmaker Selina Islam and two other family members to provide some documents.

Earlier on June 8, a letter was sent to the Immigration Police to disallow them to leave the country.
