ACC okays charge-sheet against them, 8 others
The Anti-Corruption Commission today approved the charge-sheet in a case filed for misappropriating over Tk 1.32 crore in depositors’ money from Sonali Bank by its two employees along with eight others.

Suspended manager Akkas Ali and ex-senior officer Fazlul Haque of the bank’s Savar branch in a nexus with the eight others made the scam between February 2007 and June 2008, said ACC Deputy Director Reva Halder, who carried out the investigation.

She said Akkas and Fazlul prepared 43 fake documents of Telegraphic Transfer (TT) of money showing that they received these TTs from different branches of the bank including Mymensingh, Magura, Satkhira and Narail.

Then they transferred the money to the bank accounts of the eight other accused at the same branch, she added.

The Sonali Bank authorities lodged the misappropriation case with Savar Police Station in 2013 which later ACC investigated and submitted the charge-Sheet.

The other accused are Reaz Uddin, owner of North-South Bricks at Kaliakoir in Gazipur; Mozammel Haque, owner of Bhai-Bone Store in Savar; Wahidul Islam, a resident of Munshiganj; Meher Uddin, owner of Mitu Enterprise in Savar; Enamul Haque, owner of Zahir General Store in Savar; Abdul Alim Khan, owner of Ekota Bricks of Mirzapur in Tangail; and SKM Rabiul Islam, owner of Nabi Enterprise in Savar.

ACC source said the approved charge sheet may be submitted to the court in a day or two.
