In a rented flat in the capital’s Banani, Subrata Das, a friend of Proshanta Kumar Halder alias PK Halder, set up offices of two shell companies — Wakama Limited and A&B Trading.

With the help of his friend, Subrata then took Tk 31 crore loan from FAS Finance in the name of A&B Trading and Tk 87 crore from International Leasing and Financial Services (ILFS) Ltd for Wakama Limited.

The Anti-Corruption Commission already filed a case against Subrata, who is now in the US, his wife Shuvra Rani Ghosh, former managing director of NRB Global Bank PK Halder and three others.
