The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Monday filed an appeal petition against a Dhaka court order that had acquitted BNP mayoral candidate of Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) Engineer Ishraque Hossain.
The appeal petition was put on the cause list of the HC bench of Justice Md. Salim on Monday, said Khurshid Alam Khan, ACC lawyer.
ACC Assistant Director Shamsul Alam filed two cases with Ramna Police Station on August 29 and 30, 2010 against Ishraque, also son of late former mayor of undivided Dhaka City Corporation and BNP leader Sadeque Hossain Khoka, and his sister Sarika Sadeque.
According to the case statements, during a primary inquiry into the wealth of Ishraque and Sarika, the ACC found that they acquired wealth worth about Tk 5 crore beyond known sources of income.
