Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya, ACC public relation officer, confirmed the matter.

According to the letters, signed by ACC director Mir Mohammad Zainul Abedin Shibli and Sheikh Mohammad Fanafilla, Professor Dr Abul Kalam Azad has been asked to come at ACC’s head office on August 12 and 13 for the investigation about the corruption and irregularities, said an ACC press release here today.
