All necessary steps will be taken to bring PK Halder back: AG

AM Amin Uddin


Staff Reporter :
Attorney General AM Amin Uddin on Sunday said all the necessary steps will be taken to bring Proshanta Kumar Halder alias PK Halder back to the country to bring him to justice as because the money that has been siphoned off is people's money. The Attorney General said this while talking to the media at his office this at Sunday afternoon.
The chief law officer of the state also said, "The Enforcement Directorate of India has traced PK Halder's assets and arrested him. The next step is to bring him back to Bangladesh for justice as cases are pending against him in the country. In that case, we have to implement the prisoners exchange agreement that we have (the extradition treaty between Bangladesh and India)."
He further said, "An Interpol Red Alert has also been issued against him. In that case we will take all the necessary steps to bring PK Halder back to the country for justice as because the money that has been siphoned off is people's money."  
PK Halder was arrested in India's West Bengal on Saturday (May 14, 2022) with Indian ration card, voter ID card, and Aadhar card.
He was arrested based on the information provided by our Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) and Bangladesh Financial Intelligence Unit (BFIU), and his assets have been confiscated, added the Attorney General.
