The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Thursday approved a charge sheet against former counselor of Bangladesh High Commission in Canada Maksud Khan.
ACC Deputy Director (head office) Mahbubul Alam, now serving at its district office Chottagram-2, filed the case against Maksud Khan for reportedly embezzlement of over TK 2.5 crore.
The case was filed with Shahabagh Police Station on December 13, 2017.
The chargesheet is expected to be submitted to court very soon.
The case statement revealed that Maksud siphoned off the money, equivalent to about 415,000 Canadian dollars, from government fund allocated for Machine Readable Passport (MRP) project.
Allegations are also there that Maksud, who was also the PS to ex-Foreign Minister Dr Dipu Moni, allegedly took money from many expatriate Bangladeshis promising them to help resolve their MRP-related issues.
