Anti Corruption Unit on Tuesday filed a case against 11 including public officials for helping Rohingyas get Bangladeshi National ID cards and passports.
Deputy assistant director of ACC district integrated office of Chattogram-2, Md Sharif Uddin, filed the case.

In 2019 a Rohingya woman named Ramjan Bibi was arrested while trying to collect her NID as a Bangladeshi citizen from Chattogram EC office.
Later during interrogation, she confessed that many Rohingya citizens were getting NID cards with the help of some officials of the EC office.
Many of the accused were arrested after that from different parts of the country, including the main perpetrators, according to investigators.
ACC in its investigation got proof of the accused helping each other in acquiring false NID cards and birth certificates.
