The BFIU has detected a significant sum of cash, Tk35crore, in the bank accounts of the managing director. 

Special investigation by the BFIU unearthed the suspicious bank balance the transactions of which were made in the names of the MD and his wife in several banks, financial institutions and brokerage houses. 

BFIU has seized Mosleh Uddin Ahmed’s accounts with five banks including NCC, Jamuna Bank, Prime Bank, City Bank and Premier Bank as well as with Reliance Finance and International Leasing.
