Graft: ACC seeks bank account info on 8 BNP leaders

Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has sought bank account statements of eight top BNP leaders from seven different banks.

Recently, ACC has taken a move to investigate allegations of money laundering and amassing of wealth illegally against the eight BNP leaders.

They are BNP standing committee members Khandakar Mosharraf Hossain, Mirza Abbas, Nazrul Islam Khan and Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury; vice chairmen Abdul Awal Mintoo and Morshed Khan; Executive Committee Member Tabith Awal, and Joint Secretary General Habib-un-Nabi Khan Sohel are being investigated.

Morshed Khan's son Foysal Morshed is also being investigated.
