The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has filed a case against five people, including BNP Standing Committee member Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury, for alleged plot fraud and defying plan while constructing Hotel Sarina.
According to BSS, Deputy Director of ACC's Integrated District Office Dhaka-1 Salina Akhter filed the case on Monday.
The accused are: Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury, his wife Tahera Khasru Alam, sister-in-law Sabera Sarwer Nina, her husband Golam Sarwer and Rajuk building inspector Awrangjeb Nannu.
“The accused in collusion with each other constructed a 22-storey building on plot number 27, on road 17 in Banani, which is owned by Chattagram Stock Exchange, and took hold of most of the floors. They violated the plan of Rajuk. They also constructed the 21-storey Hotel Sarina instead of the 15-storey on the adjacent plot number 25,” ACC Secretary Md Mahbub Hossain said.
The case was filed under sections 409/109/467/468/471 and 420.
According to the case documents, Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury and his wife concealed information about their ownership of the five-star hotel, whereas they are also two of the owners along with Sabera Sarwer Nina and her husband Golam Sarwer.
