The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Thursday summoned South Bangla Agriculture and Commerce (SBAC) Bank’s former managing director Rafiqul Islam and eight other senior officials for interrogation.

The anti-graft body asked the nine bank officials to appear at the commission headquarters in the capital’s Segunbagicha on September 26, ACC sources said.

 ACC is carrying out a probe against SBAC Bank’s immediate past Chairman SM Amjad Hossain on charges of embezzling money from the private bank in the name of loans.

The eight others are Management Trainee Officer Topu Kumar Saha, Senior Officer Bidyut Kumar Mondol, Assistant Vice President  and Operations Manager Monjur Alam, Vice President and Branch Chief SM Iqbal Mehedi, Senior Executive Officer Khaled Musaraf, First Vice President Ziaul Latif, Senior Executive Vice President Mamunur Rashid Mulla, and Deputy Managing Director Shaukot Ali.

The commission has gathered information from various sources including the Bangladesh Financial Intelligence Unit's report (BFIU) in this regards. The ACC probe team discovered that the SBAC chairman embezzled in the name of a non-existent institution, Khulna Builders Limited, as well as in the names of bank employees.
