HC also directs IGP to seize passports of the accused individuals

The High Court has ordered immediate arrest of five persons, including a Chinese citizen for swindling out more than Tk2.59 crore through forged documents from the Dilkusha Branch of National Bank Limited in 2017.   

The bench of justices Md Nazrul Islam Talukder and KM Hafizul Alam issued the order on Wednesday. 

The court issued the order after rejecting the plea submitted seeking cancelation of case proceedings.

The accused are – National Bank's senior Vice President Abdul Odud Khan, Sinfa Nitas Company Chairman Yang Wang Chung, Managing Director Kashru Al Rahman, Director Mansurul Haque and Md Golam Mostofa. 

The High Court also asked the trial court to finalize the proceedings of the case within six months and instructed the Inspector General of Police to seize the passports of all of the accused persons restricting them from leaving Bangladesh.

In June 2017, a case was filed with the Dilkusha police station against six persons including Bank's executive vice president Sahabuddin Chowdhury for swindling out Tk2.59 crore. 

According to the case history, the accused persons through forged documents opened a fake LC in the name of Sinfa Nitas Limited Company and misappropriated more than Tk2.59 crore from the bank.

After investigation, a report was submitted against the accused persons on 24 June in 2018.

The case is now under trial with the High Court. 

Sahabuddin Chowdhury submitted a plea seeking cancelation of case proceedings.
