Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Wednesday lodged two separate cases against the Personal Assistant (PA) of a former Parliament Member at Sirajganj-4 constituency (Ullapara) and his wife on charge of amassing illegal assets and concealing information.

The defendants are Mir Ariful Islam Uzzal, 46, son of late Mir Shahidul Islam Punnu, also Personal Assistant (PA) of Tanvir Emam, former Parliament Member for Sirajganj-4 constituency and his wife Morsheda Marium, 44.

Md. Khairul Haque, Deputy Director of ACC in Pabna office confirmed the matter and said, “Evidences of amassing illegal money and assets have been found against Uzzal and his wife Marium. ACC started investigation against them after getting an allegation in 2023. At last, we have moved to file cases against the couple on the basis of some valuable evidences of their corruptions.”

According to the allegation, Uzzal in his statement showed the amount of movable and immovable asset at around Tk 1, 66, 29,776. But after a verification, ACC found at around Tk 1,68,78,959, where about Tk 2,49,183 is higher than the showed amount. Besides, ACC found information of illegal earnings by him. Similarly, his wife is containing an asset of Tk 1,59,23,859 against the showed amount of Tk 1,46,26,669 in her statement. Besides, Marium, also a housewife, had concealed the information of assets, which amount was around Tk 13 lakh.

While contacted, Mir Ariful Islam Uzzal said, “I have submitted my asset statement to the ACC. Now, I have nothing to say about this. ACC can take any lawful action after investigation, if the organization finds any fault or graft evidence against me and my wife.”
