Sonali Bank yesterday filed another case against Hall-Mark Group on charges of taking over Tk 60.27 crore in loan on fake documents.
Abdus Salam, executive officer of the bank's Ruposhi Bangla branch, filed the case with the Artho Rin Adalat-1 against Hall-Mark Group Chairperson Jasmine Islam, Managing Director Tanvir Mahmud and Design Wear Ltd, a concern of the group.
After hearing, Judge Md Robiuzzaman directed the defendants to explain by May 12 why steps would not be taken against them.
Earlier on March 25, 27 and 30 and April 1, the bank filed 11 cases against Jasmine, Mahmud and nine of their companies with the same court for taking Tk 101 crore in loan on forged documents.
Sonali started filing cases after it failed to get buyers for the mortgaged assets of Hall-Mark.
The Anti-Corruption Commission filed 11 cases against 27 persons of Hall-Mark and its lender Sonali Bank in October 2012 and pressed charges against 25 of them in October last year on money laundering allegation.
