The Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) is set to file a case against seven bank officials for allegedly embezzling Tk 90 lakh from Sonali Bank.
The Commission at its regular meeting on Sunday approved the proposal of filing a case against five officials of Prime Bank and two of Sonali Bank, an ACC source said.
The case will be filed against Prime Bank (Motijheel Branch) sales executive Mirza Kamrul Islam, senior executive officer Ferdous Akhter Dipu, senior vice presidents (operation) Mohiuddin Ahmed and M Zafar Hasan, and executive officer HM Kamrul Islam Suman; and Sonali Bank (Local Office, Motijheel) senior officer Anisur Rahman Sarkar and officer Liakat Hossain Chowdhury.
According to the ACC inquiry, the accused in collusion with each other earlier transferred Tk 90 lakh from an account of Belhasa Accom and Associates Ltd in Sonali Bank local branch to an account of M/s Kamal Enterprise, a fake business firm, and embezzled the amount by withdrawing the money.
ACC deputy director Shahin Ara Momtaz started inquiry into the graft allegation in 2012.
