Rapid Action Battalion (Rab) on Wednesday detained two more associates of Proshanto Kumar Halder, disgraced director of International Leasing and Finance Service Ltd (ILFSL), in a money laundering case.
The detainees were Sharmin Ahmed, 42 and Tania Ahmed, 37—two daughters of People’s Leasing Company director Khabir Uddin, one of the main associates of Halder.
Tipped off, the elite force detained them from Dhanmondi and Shyamoli area in the city, said Commander Khandaker Al Moin, director of the Legal and Media Wing of Rab.
