The watchdog quizzed the officials for about four hours beginning at 10:00am on Monday at its head office in Dhaka.

An ACC team, led by its deputy director Gulshan Anwar, interrogated the four officials in two groups.

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has filed 22 cases so far against PK Halder and his associates on charges of embezzling and siphoning off about Tk 4.5 billion (4,500 crore) from International Leasing and Financial Services, Peoples Leasing and Financial Services and FAS Finance and Investment Limited in the name of the fake organisations.

The ACC is now probing the cases to unearth the faults of the Bangladesh Bank’s officials concerned in monitoring and concealing information over embezzlement of the money from those institutions.

As part of the investigation, these four officials were interrogated on Monday. If investigation finds involvement of more officials, they will also be grilled.

A reliable source of ACC said all of the four central bank officials denied their involvement in the embezzlement of PK Halder.
