A Dhaka court granted six days to the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) for interrogating the sacked BASIC Bank officials accused of loan fraud.
Metropolitan Magistrate Tasruzzaman also dismissed the appeal for bail by the three on Monday, said ACC lawyer Mahmud Hossain Jahangir. The three officials were arrested on Thursday and produced before a court which sent them to jail. They are the bank’s former deputy managing directors Fazlus Sobhan and Md Selim and assistant general manager Shiper Ahmed.
The ACC had prosecuted 26 officers of the bank in September last year on charges of helping several business houses to secure disbursement of around Tk 45 billion in loans through forgery. The three are accused in several of the 56 cases over the forgery, according to bdnews24.com.
