The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Monday confiscated recently-expelled Jubo League (JL) Office Secretary Kazi Anisur Rahman's assets worth Tk100 crore.
ACC Deputy Director Gulshan Anwar Pradhan confiscated the assets following a court order.
Public Relations Officer of the commission Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya confirmed the news to The Business Standard.
The assets include: a five-storey house in Kalabagan, two flats in Dhanmondi and Wari, three shops on Elephant Road, as well as 13 square feet of commercial space and two shops at a market in Gulshan 2 in the capital.
The ACC also confiscated: a luxurious house in Boalia village under Muksudpur upazila in Gopalganj, a petrol pump, 15 bighas of land worth Tk30 crore, and 40 kathas of land in Keraniganj. Moreover, the commission froze a Tk50 crore bank account of the former JL leader.
Previously, the ACC seized income tax documents worth Tk16 crore from Kazi Anisur Rahman and his wife Sumi Rahman.
On 29 September, 2019, the ACC filed a case against Anisur and Sumi on charges of illegally amassing Tk12.8 crore and Tk1.31 crore, respectively.
Anisur Rahman went into hiding after law enforcement launched a drive against corruption and illegal casino businesses on 18 September last year.
During the drive, many leaders of the ruling Awami League's associate bodies were arrested for their alleged involvement in various illegal activities.
Juba League insiders said Anis had risen from office assistant to top leader of the organisation with the blessings of some top JL leaders.
His syndicate was involved in various illegal activities including extortion, tender manipulation and gambling, alleged law enforcement agencies' officials.
