5 arrested for misappropriating money from banks with fake NID, trade license

Detectives claimed to have arrested five persons who allegedly misappropriated huge amount of money from banks as loans -- using fake national ID card, trade license and other documents.

The arrestees are Al Amin alias Jamil Sharif (34), Kh.M. Hasan Imam alias Bidyut (48), Abdullah Al Shahid (41), Rezaul Islam (38) and Shah Zaman (39), revealed Dhaka Metropolitan Police Additional Commissioner AKM Hafeez Akter while talking to journalists during a press conference today.

They were arrested during raids in Khilgaon and Rampura areas of Dhaka yesterday. A private car used by them was also recovered from their possession.

A few employees of the NID wing, under Election Commission, were involved in the scam, the official said.

"We have reported the issue to the NID authorities. They have already sacked 44 employees. Some of them were involved in the scam before they were sacked," he added.

The detectives found that the arrestees are members of a professional fraud gang. They embezzled loans from various banks using fake NIDs, trade licenses and TIN certificates.
