Bacchu falls sick during quizzing by ACC

Former Basic Bank chairman Sheikh Abdul Hye Bacchu fell sick today, during his second day of quizzing over a loan scam that rattled Bangladesh’s banking sector.

He was being quizzed by Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) in Segunbagicha since 10:00am, said Pranab Kumar Bhattachariya, public relations officer of ACC.

Bacchu was examined by doctors when he fell sick around 2:00pm, the officer told The Daily Star this afternoon.

He came out of the ACC office around 5:00pm. 

The ACC on November 23 summoned Bacchu and 10 former directors of the bank to its office for interrogation in scam cases involving around Tk 4,500 crore.
