A Dhaka court on Sunday issued arrest warrant against 10 including former Managing Director of the then NRB Global Bank and Reliance Finance, Proshanta Kumar Halder alias PK Halder in a case lodged over amassing illegal wealth and laundering the money abroad.

Dhaka Metropolitan Sessions Judge KM Imrul Qayesh passed the order, after taking the charge-sheet filed in the case, into cognizance. The court also set May 25 to submit a report on executing Sunday's order.

The court also issued arrest warrant against PK Halder's mother Lilaboti Halder, Purnima Rani Halder, Uttam Kumar Mistri, Amitabh Adhikari, Pritish Kumar Halder, Rajib Shom, Subrata Das, Anang Mohan Roy and Swapan Kumar Mistri.

Police today produced co-accused Abantika Boral, Shonkho Bepari, Sukumar Mridha and Anindita Mridha before the court. As the other 10 accused

including PK Halder remained absent, the court later issued arrest warrant against them.

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on January 8, 2020, filed the case against Halder for amassing illegal wealth of around Taka 275 crore and

laundering the money abroad.
