The Supreme Court has ordered Jamuna Bank's Deputy Managing Director Mozammel Hossain to surrender to the lower court.
The bank official is accused of being involved in the Tk 11.74 billion loan scam committed by Bismillah Group between 2010 and 2012.
Appellate Division's chamber judge Mahmud Hossain gave the order on Tuesday after hearing a petition by the Anti Corruption Commission.
The Jamuna Bank official was released from jail on Jul 23 after he secured a bail from the High Court the previous day.
On Nov 3 last year, the ACC filed 12 cases against 53 officials of five banks and Bismillah Group under the Money Laundering Prevention Act, 2012.
According to the case details, the accused were involved in embezzling of funded loans worth Tk 11.74 billion given to Bismillah Group from Janata Bank, Prime Bank, Premier Bank and Shahjalal Islami Bank.
Mozammel Hossain, who then worked for Prime Bank, has been accused in two cases.
He later joined Jamuna Bank before being arrested on Jan 20.
