ACC arrests two more associates of PK Halder

The Anti-Corruption Commission on Sunday arrested People's Leasing and Financial Services Limited chairman Uzzal Kumar Nandi and International Leasing and Financial Services Limited’s former managing director Rashedul Haque for helping Prasanta Kumar Halder in money laundering.

The Commission deputy director Gulshan Anwar Pradhan arrested them from the capital’s Segunbagicha area, said ACC director for public relations Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee.

He said that the commission would produce Uzzal and Rashedul to respective court and file two separate cases on Monday.

Earlier the commission has detected Rashedul as the ‘key associate’ of former People’s Leasing and Financial Services managing director Proshanto Kumar Halder when he swindled around Tk 2,500 crore from ILFSL.

Rashedul’s involvement in the anomalies has been detected by the commission in August 2020, an ACC director general told New Age.

The Commission earlier on Thursday arrested former NRB Global Bank managing director PK Halder’s close associates Sukumar Mridha and his daughter Anindita Mridha.

On January 13, the Commission arrested PK Halder’s female friend Abantika in the capital over her alleged link with PK Halder.

PK Halder is facing allegations of embezzling over Tk 10,000 crore, which he took out as loans from different financial institutions in the name of companies owned by him and his family members.
