The High Court on Tuesday ordered the confiscation of properties, freezing of bank accounts and passports to be seized of Proshanto Kumar Halder, director of International Leasing and Finance Service Ltd (ILFSL) as well as former managing director of NRB Global Bank Ltd, and 19 others.
The lone bench of Justice Muhammad Khurshid Alam Sarkar passed the order after hearing an appeal filed by two depositors of ILFSL.
The HC also appointed Khondokar Ibrahim Khaled, Former Deputy Governor of Bangladesh Bank, as independent director and chairman of the company.
Advocate Mehedi Hasan Chowdhury, who stood for the petitioner, said the two depositors filed the petition after they failed to get back their deposited money.
