A High Court bench of Justice Md Ashfaqul Islam and Justice Mohammad Ali passed the order on Wednesday.

The secretary of the finance ministry, governor of the Bangladesh Bank, Brac Bank, National Bank, City Bank, chairman of Unipay2u and other people concerned have been asked to respond to the rule.
Lawyer Shamsuzzaman Tuhin said, "More than Tk420.14 crore of the company has been stuck in different accounts related to the case. The writ was filed to distribute the money among the customers."
