Dhaka, May 15: Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan has said legal action will be taken against Prashanta Kumar Halder (PK Halder) after receiving relevant documents officially.

The home minister said this while addressing a seminar on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s homecoming day at Jatiya Press Club on Sunday afternoon.

The minister said, “We have not received any official documents regarding PK Halder yet. PK Halder is accused in a number of cases in our country. We have sought Interpol’s cooperation (in this regard). We will continue our legal efforts after receiving the documents officially.”

“He (PK Halder) is facing the law of that country (India) where he is at present. We want him back for our cases,” the minister said.

Detectives of India’s Enforcement Directorate and other security agencies today began interrogating former NRB Global Bank MD PK Halder, a day after his arrest in connection with money laundering case against him.

PK Halder, who has been on the run from facing charges of money laundering since 2019, was arrested along with an associate in West Bengal yesterday.
