Interpol have issued a red notice against PK Halder 

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has arrested four people in connection with the PK Halder money laundering case.

The arrestees include Ujjwal Nandi, chairman of People’s Leasing, and Rashedul Haque, former managing director of International Leasing.

The four were arrested from Segunbagicha in Dhaka around 4pm on Sunday, ACC Secretary Dr Muhammad Anwar Hossain Hawlader told reporters in a press briefing.

"A team led by ACC Deputy Director Gulshan Anwar Pradhan arrested them. They have been kept in the custody of Ramna Model police station and will be produced before the court on Monday morning,” he said.

On January 8, 2020, the ACC filed a case against Halder on charges of amassing about Tk275 crore beyond his known sources of income.

On December 3, 2020, the Canadian government informed the Bangladesh government about PK Halder's Canadian holding address.

The International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) issued a red notice against PK Halder on January 8, following a request from Bangladesh Police. The move came after the High Court on November 19, 2020 asked the government and the ACC what steps were being taken to bring him back to Bangladesh.

On January 14, the ACC froze Tk1,057 crore from the accounts of 62 associates of PK Halder on charges of them being involved in his money laundering scams.
