India held runaway businessman PK Halder, a prime suspect in the siphoning off the biggest amount of money from Bangladesh, along with five other associates, including his brother.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) of India ran them May 13 from Ashok Nagar area of 24 Parganas of West Bengal.

PK Halder, the former managing director and CEO at the privately-owned commercial bank NRB Global, is charged with misappropriations of more than Tk 35 billion, as per the Bangladesh Bank investigation, from as many as four non-bank financial institutions (NBFIs) and siphoning off the money to India, the USA, Canada, and Singapore.

But as per an investigation conducted by the Anti-Corruption Commission, which has filed several cases, the money embezzled may stand at more than Tk 100 billion.
