Two months ago, he also staged a human chain in front of the press club claiming that a microcredit company owed him around Tk1.26 crore. 

According to the case, accused Nurul Amin and his wife Fatema Amin convinced Anis to invest Tk1 crore, assuring him of hefty profits in 2018. Later, he invested another Tk26 lakh. 

The accused now owe Anis over Tk3 crore which has prompted him to file a case against him at Kushtia Cognizance Court. 

Nazrul Islam said that he received a call from his brother on Monday saying that Nurul and Fatima had assured him of returning the money through cheques that day but did not.
