ACC to quiz 14 more Sonali, BDBL officials

The Anti-Corruption Commission will quiz eight officials of Sonali Bank and six of Bangladesh Development Bank Ltd (BDBL) in connection with loan scams.

Letters have been sent to Sonali Bank's local, Agargaon and Gulshan branches in the capital and principal branch of BDBL last week, asking the officials concerned to appear before the ACC on Wednesday and Thursday, said Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya, public relations officer in the ACC.

Deputy general managers (DGM) Mohammad Kamrul Islam, MA Salam and former DGM Mir Mohidur Rahman of Sonali Bank's principal office and Assistant General Manager Khandakar Rakib Hossain, principal officers Nurul Amin Kazi, and Tahmina Banu of BDBL are among the officials notified to appear.

ACC sources said around Tk 250 crore has been misappropriated from the Gulshan and Agargaon branches of the state-owned Sonali Bank over the last three years.

However, the amount embezzled from the BDBL could not be known.
