ACC sues PK Halder among 33 people for ‘embezzling’ Tk 351cr

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Monday filed five cases against 33 people including Proshanta Kumar Halder on charges of embezzling about Tk 351 crore of International Leasing and Financial Services Limited (ILFS).

The anti-graft body’s Deputy Director Gulshan Anwar Prodhan filed the five cases with Its integrated district office Dhaka-1, said ACC Secretary Md Anwar Hossain Hawlader.

The ACC has already arrested People’s Leasing & Financial Services Ltd former chairman Uzzal Nandi, and ILFS’s former managing director Rashedul Haque in connection with the case.

A team of the ACC led by its Deputy Director Gulshan Anwar Prodhan arrested the duo on Sunday after completion of their interrogation at the commission’s headquarters in the capital’s Segunbagicha.

Meanwhile, a Dhaka court on Monday put the two close associates of PK Halder on a five-day remand each in a case filed by the ACC.

Dhaka Senior Special Judge KM Emrul Kayesh granted the remand for Uzzal and Rashedul after they were produced before his court by ACC with a plea of five-day remand.

Earlier, the ACC also arrested four people ---Sukumar Mridha, his daughter Anindita Mridha, Abontika Boral and Shankha Bepari--- in connection with a case filed former NRB Global Bank Limited managing director against PK Halder for amassing illegal wealth worth about Tk 275 crore.
