The Anti-Corruption Commission has filed a case against former chief justice Surendra Kumar Sinha and his brother as the anti-graft body had found their involvement in buying a three-storied building in the United States through laundered money.

On November 9, 2021, a special court in Dhaka sentenced SK Sinha to imprisonment for 11 years on two charges — one for laundering Tk 4 crore from erstwhile Farmers Bank, now Padma Bank, and the other for embezzling the amount in breach of trust as a public servant.

The commission filed the corruption case against the former chief justice and 10 others on July 10, 2019.

Justice Sinha resigned on November 11, 2017, from abroad.
