The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed a case on Tuesday against expelled Jubo Mohila League leader Shamima Nur Papiya and her husband Mofizur Rahman Sumon for amassing Tk6.24 crore illegally.
Shahin Ara Mamtaz, deputy director of the commission, filed the case at the Dhaka-1 Integrated Office of the anti-graft agency.
Earlier on March 1, the ACC assigned Shahin Ara to investigate the allegations against Papiya of amassing assets illegally.
On February 22, the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested Papiya and her husband along with their accomplices from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport with counterfeit notes, foreign currencies and around Tk2.5 lakh in cash.
Later, Rab raided several flats under possession of Papiya in the Farm Gate area, and seized a foreign-made pistol, two magazines, 20 bullets, five bottles of foreign-made liquor and Tk58.41 lakh in cash, credit and debit cards of different banks.
Three separate cases were filed then.
