A Chattogram-based businessman on Sunday filed Tk 930 crore compensation lawsuit against Proshanto Kumar Halder, the disgraced director of International Leasing and Finance Service Ltd.
After a hearing, the first joint district and sessions court judge Khairul Amin issued summons for Halder and four other accused – Ratan Kumar Bishwas, Ujjal Kumar Nandi, Md Jahangir Alam and Siddikur Rahman.
Plaintiff’s lawyer Rasel Sarkar said that the accused embezzled Md Alim Chowdhury’s money instead of handing over shares of Radisson Blu Hotel in Cox’s Bazar.
Previously, Alim filed another case against PK Halder, the lawyer said.
On behalf of Alim, head of Crystal Group, Shoayeb Ur Rashid filed the case.
PK Halder is accused in cases of illegal wealth accumulation and money laundering. He is currently on the run.
