The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has summoned Prasanta Kumar (PK) Halder, former managing director of NRB Global Bank and Reliance Finance, over the embezzlement of Tk3,500 crore from different financial institutions.
The ACC has also summoned four other businessmen to determine their involvement in the incident. They are Shaw Wallace Bangladesh Ltd managing director M Nurul Alam, its directors Rezaur Rahman and Syeda Ruhi Gaznavi, plus Mizanur Rahman.
ACC deputy director Gulshan Anwar Pradhan has sent separate notices to them asking that they be present before him on August 10 at the ACC's head office.
According to different sources, PK Halder left the country late last year though the ACC had sent the notice to his permanent address.
On January 8 this year, the ACC filed a case against PK Halder on charges of accumulating illegal wealth worth Tk274 crore and money laundering.
