The High Court on Wednesday directed the law enforcement agencies to arrest Prashant Kumar Halder, better known as PK Halder, director of International Leasing and Financial Services Limited, as soon as he return to the country.
PK Halder allegedly embezzled and laundered about Tk3,600 crore of investors' money and fled the country.
A single-member bench of Justice Muhammad Khurshid Alam Sarkar passed the order on Wednesday.
Barrister Mahfuzur Rahman Milon appeared for PK Haldar in the court while Advocate Khurshid Alam Khan stood for the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC).
In a hearing on Tuesday, PK Haldar's lawyer told the court that PK Haldar would return to Dhaka on an Emirates Airlines flight from Dubai on the 25th of this month.
Earlier in the first week of September, PK Haldar applied to the High Court seeking assurances for his safety prior to his return to Bangladesh.
On January 21, the High Court ordered the seizure of all assets, bank accounts and passports of 19 people, including PK Halder, in connection with the laundering of Tk36,00 crore.
The 19 others are either directors of the ILFSL or family members or friends of PK Halder.
