A case was filed for over embezzlement of Tk9.53 crore in April 2017

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has filed a charge sheet against 31 people, including three bank officials of the United Commercial Bank Ltd (UCB), in a case filed over embezzlement of Tk9.53 crore.

The commission approved the charge sheet at its regular meeting held at the ACC Headquarters in Dhaka on Wednesday, ACC Public Relations Officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee said.

The charge sheet was filed against former UCB vice-president Ikhtiar Uddin Ahmed, former assistant vice-president Anwar Hossain Pathan and former operations manager of Shantinagar branch Masiuddin Hossain.

Former assistant vice-president Saleh Ahmed Bhuiyan was acquitted of the charges.

On April 5, 2017, ACC Deputy Director Sheikh Abdus Salam filed the case against five individuals with Shahbag police station.

The lawsuit alleged that they were involved in embezzling the money by taking a loan for the construction of a building.

Initially, five people were found to be involved with the embezzlement – one of them was later acquitted, but 27 others, whose names were mentioned in the charge sheet, were found to be involved.

In addition, ACC has found that the accused also embezzled Tk1.83 crore from sale of flats by selling them to four buyers illegally.

The other accused in the charge sheet are managing director of Alampana Bangladesh Ltd Md Assad, and other officials of UCB and a few other organizations.
