The Anti Corruption Commission is set to file a case against four people, including three engineers of erstwhile Dhaka City Corporation (DCC), for allegedly causing a loss of Tk 1.34 crore to the government.
The Commission at its regular meeting on Thursday decided to file the case against them, Commission’s public relations officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya told UNB.
