A team of Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) yesterday arrested a Sonali Bank official and his wife from Faridpur on charge of their alleged involvement with the embezzlement of a client’s money amounting above Tk30m from Sadarpur branch of Faridpur district.

ACC Public Relations Officer Pranab Kumer Bhattacharya told the Dhaka Tribune: “The commission’s deputy director and also investigation officer of the case, Moloy Kumar Saha, arrested Sadarpur branch Sonali Bank Officer Jakir Hossain and his wife Sheuli Akhter while they were leaving the district’s ACC office.”

His wife was arrested for assisting him with this embezzlement, the PR officer added.

According to ACC sources, from March 14, 2005 to August 4, 2011, the Sonali Bank official has swindled above Tk30m from the Faridpur’s Sadarpur branch by depositing money of 138 clients of the bank in his wife’s bank account.
