The Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) on Wednesday submitted charge-sheet against 18 people, including Sohel Rana, in the Rana Plaza collapse case.

ACC deputy director M Mofidul Islam submitted the charge-sheet before a Dhaka court, ACC source said.

The Commission on Tuesday approved the charge-sheet incorporating the name of Sohel Rana, the key accused of the deadly building collapse.

The accused named in the charge-sheet include Sohel Rana, his parents Abdul Khaleque and Marjina Begum. Savar Municipality mayor Refat Ullah, former chief executive officer of Savar Municipality Uttam Kumar Roy, its executive engineer Rafiqul Islam, commissioner Haji M Ali Khan (Ward 7, Savar), architect ATM Masud Reza, Engr Sajjad Hossain and former town planner of Savar Municipality Farjana Islam.

On June 15 this year, the ACC filed a case against 17 people, including Rana’s parents, on charge of constructing Rana Plaza building with faulty design.

The local municipality had given approval in 2007 to construct a five-storey building, but the owners built an eight-storey commercial complex on wetland, which caused the catastrophic building collapse.
