Probe report in graft case against SK Sinha Aug 28

A Dhaka court on Thursday fixed August 28 for submitting probe report in a corruption case filed against 11 people, including former chief justice Surendra Kumar Sinha, on charges of embezzling funds and laundering money.

Dhaka Senior Special Judge KM Imrul Kayes passed the order, accepting the FIR of the case filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Wednesday.

ACC director Syed Iqbal Hossain filed the case for embezzling Tk four crore from then Farmers Bank and laundering the money.

The other accused are former Farmers Bank managing director AKM Shameem, first vice-presidents Swapan Kumar Roy and Shafiuddin Askaree, senior executive vice-presidents Gazi Salauddin and Ziauddin Ahmed, and vice-president M Lutful Haque, bank clients Md Shahjahan, Niranjan Chandra Saha, his uncle Ranajit Chandra Saha, and Ranajit’s wife Santree Roy.

According to the allegation, Md Shahjahan and Niranjan took the money on loan from then Farmers Bank, which was later transferred to Justice Sinha’s Sonali Bank account, showing it was earned from selling of his (Sinha’s) house.
