ACC arrests PK Halder’s associate Shuvra Rani Ghosh

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) arrested Shuvra Rani Ghosh, "associate" of Proshanta Kumar Halder, known as PK Halder, who allegedly laundered over Tk100 billion from four non-banking financial institutions (NBFIs) abroad.

Shuvra, owner of Wakama Limited, was arrested from the airport on Monday morning when she was trying to flee the country.

Earlier on Sunday , the anti-graft body filed a case against her on allegation of embezzling Tk 87.6 crore from International Finance in the name of a fake company.

The ACC filed six fresh cases against 37 people – including PK Halder – for allegedly embezzling about Tk494.6 crore through six ghost companies.

PK Halder, former director of International Leasing and Finance Service Limited (ILFSL), fled the country after allegedly embezzling and laundering Tk11,000 crore.
