The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has filed charge sheet in a graft case against 11 people including former chief justice Surendra Kumar Sinha.

Investigation officer (IO) and ACC director Benjir Ahmed filed the charge sheet with the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Session Judge KM Imrul Qayes on Tuesday.

The anti-graft body filed the case on July 10 for embezzling Taka four crore from then Farmers Bank and laundering the money abroad.

The other accused are- former Farmers Bank managing director AKM Shameem, first vice-presidents Swapan Kumar Roy and Shafiuddin Askaree, senior executive vice-president Gazi Salauddin, vice- president M Lutful Haque, bank’s entrepreneur director Md Mahbubul Haque Chisty alias Babul Chisty, bank clients Md Shahjahan, Niranjan Chandra Saha, his uncle Ranajit Chandra Saha, and Ranajit’s wife Santree Roy.

According to the allegation, Md Shahjahan and Niranjan took the money on loan from then Farmers Bank, which was later transferred to Justice Sinha’s Sonali Bank account, showing it was earned from selling of his (Sinha’s) house.
