NBR freezes three more bank accounts of Destiny
The National Board of Revenue yesterday directed banks to freeze three more accounts related to controversial multilevel marketing (MLM) company Destiny Group.
The tax administrator asked banks to freeze accounts of two officials of Destiny Group -- Shammi Akhter and Nimmi Akhter -- along with the account of Destiny Tree Plantation, a concern of Destiny, said an official of the NBR.
The NBR's Central Intelligence Cell sent a letter to all banks asking them to suspend all transactions, including withdrawal and transfer of money from these accounts.
This was the third time the tax authority moved to freeze bank accounts of Destiny Group to investigate whether Destiny has complied with tax laws or dodged tax.
Earlier, the NBR froze eight bank accounts, including that of Destiny Group's Chairman Mohammad Rafiqul Amin.
