The Anti-Corruption Corporation (ACC) will lodge a lawsuit against Prodip Kumar Sharma – a former Deputy General Manager (DGM) of Sonali Bank Limited – for fraudulence and dishonesty. An ACC investigation has found that the ex-bank official secured his job by submitting a fake freedom fighter certificate.
ACC Assistant Director (public relations) Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya confirmed the matter.
Deputy Director of the anti-corruption watchdog Md Hafijul Islam conducted the investigation against Prodip and found that his freedom fighter certificate was fake.
“He (Prodip) has failed to show his real certificate to the investigation team which proves he got the job through fraudulence,” said Hafijul. According to the ACC investigation, the DGM got himself appointed in Sonali Bank on July 10 in 1984.
Since then, he drew a total of Tk 85,44,317 as salary and Tk 65,21,867 as home and car loan. ACC will file the case under the Panel Code, provisions 420/409/467/468/477 and under the Anti-Corruption Act 1947, section 5 (2).
