Money in Bangladeshi Taka

A court here today set April 6 for submitting probe report in a case filed against former Chief Justice Surendra Kumar (SK) Sinha and his brother Ananta Kumar Sinha for allegedly owning a three-storied house in the United States bought through laundered money. 

Metropolitan Sessions Judge Md Asaduzaman of Dhaka passed the order as investigation agency Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) could not submit the report today.

The ACC on March 31, 2022, filed the case under sections 4 (2) and 4 (3) of the Money Laundering Prevention Act and section 5 (2) of the Anti-Corruption Act. 

According to the case documents, Ananta bought the house for his brother at a cost of about Taka 2.40 crore. As the ACC could not identify any legal source of the money paid for the home, it believes that the money was earned illegally or laundered from Bangladesh. - UNB
