The Anti-Corruption Commission or ACC has quizzed three directors of Abul Khair Group in an investigation into charges of embezzling money taken from banks in loans and acquiring illegal assets with it.
The three directors of the firm are – Abul Kashem, Md Abu Sayeed Chowdhury and Shah Shafiqul Islam, bdnews24.com reported.
ACC Director Syed Iqbal Hossain quizzed the trio from 10:30am to 2pm at the commission headquarters in Dhaka’s Segunbagicha on Sunday, its spokesperson Pranab Kumar Bhattacharya told bdnews24.com.
Three directors of Abul Khair Group did not speak to the media after the questioning.
The national anti-graft agency had also summoned Abul Hashem, another director of the firm, but he did not appear on Sunday.
It is investigating the allegations against the quartet of embezzling 'billions of taka' after taking the money as loans from different banks.
They also face charges of dodging taxes for assets they acquired illegally.
The watchdog sent summons to them for interrogation twice in December last year. As they did not respond to the summonses, the commission again summoned them on Jan 9 this year.
