BFIU seeks info on Sayeed Khokon’s bank transactions

Bangladesh Financial Intelligence Unit (BFIU) sent letters to all the scheduled banks in the country seeking detailed information on former DSCC mayor Sayeed Khokon’s bank accounts and its transactions.

The intelligence agency took the decision for curbing money laundering and terrorist financing in the country.

The scheduled banks received the letters on Tuesday, sources said.

Earlier in the last month, a Dhaka court ordered to freeze eight bank accounts of Khokon and his family members as part of an investigation into an allegation of amassing illegal wealth.
