Rajshahi bank official sent to jail in graft case
A Rajshahi court on Monday sent an Agrani Bank official to jail in a graft case.
Rajshahi District Sessions Judge Meer Shafiqul Alam passed the order rejecting bail prayers of Ahsan Habib Nayan, principal officer of the bank's DGM office in Rajshahi.
The Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) filed a case against Nayan on January 27 this year after investigating an allegation of withdrawing Tk 6 lakh from the account of an Agrani Bank client.
According to the case statement, the accused withdrew money from the account of one Saber Ali on June 16, 2019, using his blank cheque.
An investigation jointly conducted by the Bangladesh Bank and Agrani Bank found proof of money misappropriation by Nayan. The official, later, deposited the money to Saber's account on September 30, 2019.
Jahangir Alam, deputy director of ACC Rajshahi District Coordinated Office, has filed a regular case against him.
The accused appeared before the court today and filed a bail petition through his lawyer, he said.
