A Dhaka court has set August 13 for the indictment hearing in the case filed against former chief justice Surendra Kumar Sinha, and 10 others, on charges of embezzlement and laundering about Tk4 crore from Farmers Bank Limited.

Judge Shaikh Nazmul Alam of Dhaka Special Judge Court-4 set the date after a hearing of the case on Monday.

On January 5, another Dhaka court accepted the charges against the accused in the case and issued arrest warrants for them, as they were shown as fugitives in the charge sheet.

On December 10 last year, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) submitted the charge sheet in the case against 11 people, including the former chief justice.

Among the others accused are AKM Shamim, former managing director of Farmers Bank (now Padma Bank), Senior Executive Vice-President and head of Credit Division Gazi Salahuddin, First Vice-President of Credit Division Swapan Kumar Roy, First Vice-President Shafiuddin Askary, Vice-President Lutful Haque and Mahbubul Haque Chisty, former chairman of the bank's audit committee.

Shahjahan of Tangail’s Sreehoripur village, Ranjit Chandra Saha of the district’s Jodunathpur village, his wife Santi Roy, and nephew Niranjan Chandra Saha, have also been accused in the graft case.

Among the accused, AKM Shamim and Gazi Salahuddin have secured bail and Mahbubul Haque Chisty was shown as arrested in the case.

On July 10, the ACC filed the case against SK Sinha and 10 others with the anti-graft watchdog’s Dhaka integrated district office-1 at Segunbagicha, for allegedly plundering Tk4 crore from Farmers Bank with fake loan documents in the names of two persons.

The money was later transferred to the account of SK Sinha and siphoned off, said the case statement.

SK Sinha resigned as chief justice on November 11, 2017, from abroad. He is now in the US.
