The High Court has ordered the arrest of five, including one Chinese national, over around Tk2.60 crore loan scam in National Bank.
The court also asked to confiscate the passports of them and directed Special Judges' Court-5 of Dhaka to settle the case within six months.

A bench of Justice Md Nazrul Islam Talukdar and Justice KM Hafizul Alam passed the order today dismissing the bank's former executive vice-president Shahabuddin Chowdhury's plea of discarding the graft case.
