A Dhaka court on Wednesday placed Abantika Boral, girlfriend of Prashanta Kumar Halder alias PK Halder, on a three-day remand.
Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Kayesh granted the remand prayer.
Earlier this morning, a team of Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) led by its deputy director Md Salauddin detained Abantika from the capital's Dhanmondi area.
According to the ACC, it summoned her on December 28 for interrogation. But she did not appear and did not inform it before.
The anti-graft body on January 8, last year, filed a case against PK Halder for accumulating illegal wealth of Tk 275 crore.
PK Halder went into hiding after allegedly siphoning off the money from various financial institutions.
The International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol) issued a red alert on January 8 to arrest Prashanta Kumar Halder.
