PK Halder's close aide Abontika on ACC remand

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) quizzed Abontika Boral, a close associate of Proshanta Kumar Halder charged with amassing illegal wealth and money laundering, after a Dhaka court granted a three-day remand.

Abontika was taken to ACC office around 12:00 pm on Monday. 

A team, led by ACC Deputy Director Md Salahuddin, interrogated Abontika, according to sources.

Earlier on January 13, ACC arrested Abontika Boral form the capital's Dhanmondi area.

She was a close friend of Proshanta Kumar Halder, known as PK Halder, who allegedly laundered over Tk 10,000 crore of four non-banking financial institutions (NBFIs) abroad.

Earlier on January 5, the High Court slapped an international travel ban on 25 people, including Abontika, for their alleged connection with former NRB Global Bank MD PK Halder who has been absconding abroad to avoid trial in the money laundering case.
