Money laundering: Sinha’s brother under ACC probe
Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Monday has formed a two-member probe body to investigate into allegations of illegal wealth accumulation and money laundering against Ananta Kumar Sinha, brother of former chief justice SK Sinha.
There is an allegation that Ananta Kumar Sinha bought a house worth $280,000 in the USA, amassing illegal wealth and money laundering.
Public Relations Officer of ACC Pranab Kumer Bhattacharya told that the two-member team headed by ACC Assistant Director Gulshan Anwar has been given the responsibility to investigate the matter.
Earlier this week, at an event marking the launch of his autobiography, “A Broken Dream,” in Washington DC, the former chief justice said he has sought political asylum in the US.
The first non-Muslim chief justice of Bangladesh left the country on October 13, 2017 for Australia.
