"You withdrew people's money. But, those deposited money to People's Leasing and Financial Services (PLFS) are now roaming in streets with empty stomach.The money of PLFS belongs to people, not to thieves and thugs. Pay the money first and then talk. Otherwise you will be sent to jail."

Of them, 137 individuals are to appear before the court today, the second day of appearance in the case.
Earlier on February 23, 143 individuals appeared on the first day.
