Earlier on October 21, the High Court ordered the law enforcing agencies to arrest PK Halder immediately upon his return to Bangladesh.

Halder reportedly amassed Tk3,600 crore and laundered the money abroad while performing his duties as the director of International Leasing and Financial Services Ltd (ILFSL).

On September 7, PK Halder, the disgraced director of ILFSL, filed an appeal before the High Court seeking security on his return to the country. 

PK Haldar, who fled to Canada after amassing and siphoning the money, said in his appeal that he wanted to return to help recover the amassed money of ILFSL and sought security for his safety on return.

After hearing appeals of seven investors of ILFSL, the court also imposed restrictions on them to leave the country but Haldar managed to escape.

Besides, on January 8, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) also filed a case against Halder for embezzlement.
