Police on Wednesday submitted a charge sheet at court against five people for scamming through an account opened under the name of a professor of Sylhet Agriculture University.
Bogura Detective Branch Police in charge Md Aslam Ali submitted the charge sheet to the Judicial Magistrate court on Wednesday.
According to a case filed on 24 May last year, Sharmin Akhtar's former husband Md Zulfiqur Ali Talukdar opened an account in Sonali Bank Bogura corporate branch with her national identity card with the help of some bank officials.
Then he gave out fake cheques to people. Those people then filed three fraud cases in Bogura and one in Naogaon when they found they could not cash the cheques.
The professor got to know about the scam after an arrest warrant was issued in her name.
She then filed a cheque fraud case against Md Zulfiqur Ali Talukdar, Md Akhtarul Haque, Md Uzzol Hossain, Md Abdul Quddus, Md Abu Taleb, bank official Ashraful Alam, Md Mahbubur Rahman and Md Anwar Hossain.
The plaintiff said, the fraud gang tried to get away with Tk59 lakh.
After investigating the matter for one and half years, police submitted a charge sheet at court against Md Zulfiqur Ali Talukdar, Md Uzzol Hossain, Md Abdul Quddus and Md Abu Taleb.
Bank official Ashraful Alam was exempted from the charge sheet as he had died.
Md Mahbubur Rahman and Md Anwar Hossain were also exempted from the charges of using the fake name and address, but there is a chance of submitting an additional charge sheet against them.
