Police has asked Interpol to issue a red alert against Proshanta Kumar Halder – the man who left the country after reportedly amassing at least Tk3,600 crore.
Police Headquarters Assistant Inspector General (Media) Md Sohel Rana confirmed this to UNB on Wednesday saying: “The National Central Bureau of Bangladesh Police sent a letter requesting Interpol to issue a red alert.”
On January 22, the High Court ordered the government to seize the properties of Halder and 19 others – including his mother, wife and brother – along with freezing their bank accounts and revoking their passports.
Also, hearing the appeals of seven International Leasing and Finance investors, the court imposed restrictions on their foreign travel. However, Halder managed to flee to Canada.
