ACC grills Sonali Bank officials for loan scam

The Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) on Sunday quizzed four officials of Sonali Bank in connection with the alleged swindling of Tk 1.56 billion from the bank by Fare Weaving Mills Limited, a private firm. ACC deputy director Harun-ur-Rashid started grilling the bank officials at 10 am and continued it until 2 pm at the ACC head office, ACC sources said.
The bank officials who faced grilling today are DGM (audit division, Sonali Bank head office) Arifur Rahman Khan, AGM M Saiful Islam Bhuiyan, principal officer M Abdul Hakim and officer M Abdul Matin.
Although the graft watchdog served notices to five Sonali Bank officials to be present at the ACC head office to face questioning today, manger of Sonali Bank’s Ramna Corporate Branch was not present at the Commission.
ACC sources said the chairman of Fare Weaving Mills Limited in collusion with some bank officials swindled Tk 1.56 crore from the Sonali Bank’s Ramna Corporate Branch showing fake documents from 2003 to 2006. (Source: UNB)
