Abdus Salam, executive officer of the state-run bank's Ruposhi Bangla branch, filed the case with the Artho Rin Adalat-1 (Money Loan Court) in Dhaka.
Hall-Mark Chairperson Jasmine Islam, Managing Director Tanvir Mahmud and Hall-Mark Fashions Limited, a concern of the group, were made accused in the case.
Accepting the case, Judge Md Rabiuzzaman fixed June 29 for next hearing.
The court asked Tanvir and Jasmine to explain their role in taking over Tk 450.84 crore in loan by that day (June 29).
