Prashanta Kumar Halder (PK Halder), former managing director (MD) of NRB Global Bank and Reliance Finance Limited, has been arrested in India. Huge assets have been found in his name in Kolkata, West Bengal.
Earlier on Saturday, the country’s Central Intelligence Agency, Enforcement Directorate (ED), conducted a search operation in various parts of India in search of PK Halder’s close aides.
The operation was carried out in India at the request of the Bangladesh Financial Intelligence Unit and the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC).
India’s central intelligence Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday conducted simultaneous raids in at least nine places in West Bengal. They have found huge properties including a few elite houses. Many important documents including land deeds have been recovered from the houses. Preliminary information has been found that PK Halder has “20 to 22 houses” in West Bengal.
Sukumar Mridha, PK Halder’s income tax lawyer, has been charged in two cases with the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) of Bangladesh for embezzling money in collusion with PK Halder. The ACC has arrested him. He is currently in jail.
Sukumar Mridha’s huge luxury house has been found in Ward No. 15 of Ashoknagar Municipality in North 24 Parganas District, 50 km from Kolkata.
According to the locals, they knew Mridha as a “fishmonger”. PK Halder and Sukumar Mridha have been neighbors in Ashoknagar for a long time. The ED believes that a huge amount of money has been embezzled from the NRB through a long-term conspiracy between the two.
