ACC starts case against 2 Dhaka Bank officials

Anti-Corruption Commission on Saturday filed a case against two officials of Dhaka Bank’s Bangshal branch over Tk 37.7 million that went missing from the bank’s vault.

Assistant Director of ACC Atiqul Alam filed the case with the Dhaka Integrated Office -1.

The two accused are senior cash in-charge Rifatul Haque and first vice president and operation manager Emran Ahmed.

The bank authorities interrogated Rifatul and Emran and they confessed to misappropriating the money.

Later, they handed them over to Bangshal police and filed the report.

A lower court in Dhaka on Friday sent them to jail.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Masudur Rahman passed the order as investigating officer and Bangshal police station Sub-Inspector Prodip Kumar Sarker produced them before the court and pleaded to send them to jail after showing them arrested under Section 54 of the Code of Criminal Procedure.

The IO in his plea said the accused were in charge of the vault of the branch and the keys were in their possession.

An audit team of the bank learned about the missing amount during their audit on Thursday and filed the report to branch manager Abu Bakkar Siddique.
