One hundred and three crore rupees went to a person’s bank by mistake

Sonali Bank Gaibandha branch mistakenly deposited Tk 3 crore 25 lakh of a private bank as Abu Taher. Abu Taher withdrew 3 crore 10 lakhs from that account. He transferred that money to several banks. The accused Abu Taher was arrested on Wednesday by the Gaibandha Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) after a case was filed in this incident. At that time, 30 lakh cash was also recovered from him. Efforts are underway to recover the rest of the money.

Gaibandha PBI gave this information in a press conference at his office on Thursday afternoon. PBI’s Gaibandhar Superintendent of Police ARM Alif gave a speech.

In the press conference, it was informed that on July 6, a check with a voucher of Tk 3 crore 25 lakh was deposited from Dutch-Bangla Bank Gaibandha branch to Sonali Bank Gaibandha main branch. That money is supposed to be transferred as one of the head offices of Dutch-Bangla Bank. But that money was mistakenly deposited in an account number named Amir International owned by Abu Taher of Dhaka. From last July 17, Abu Taher started withdrawing that money and transferred it to several banks. In this way he transferred a total of 3 crore 10 lakhs.
Dutch-Bangla Bank Gaibandha branch authorities called Sonali Bank Gaibandha branch on August 4 due to non-deposit of money for a long time. Later the matter was caught. In this incident, a case was filed against Abu Taher, who withdrew the money, at Gaibandha Sadar Police Station on August 10. Jahidul Islam, manager of Sonali Bank Limited Gaibandha branch filed the case. The incident was later handed over to the PBI to investigate.

PBI’s Gaibandhar Superintendent of Police ARM Alif said Abu Taher is a businessman. The money was deposited in the account number of Amir International owned by him from Sonali Bank Gaibandha branch. PBI Gaibandha and a team from Dhaka arrested Abu Taher from Noakhali.

Zahidul Islam, manager of Sonali Bank Gaibandha branch, said that the money went to the person’s account number by mistake. Collecting the remaining money transferred as various banks.
