The national anti-corruption watchdog said the bank chairman and his family members have been trying to leave the country
The Anti-Corruption Commission has imposed a travel ban on South Bangla Agriculture and Commerce (SBAC) Bank Chairman SM Amzad Hossain and his family members.
The ban has been slapped as part of the commission's investigation into Amzad's loan irregularities and funding anti-government political activities.
Deputy Director of the national anti-corruption watchdog Md Gulshan Anwoar Prodhan on Thursday sent a letter to the superintendent of police (immigration branch) of the Special Branch of Police.
The Anti-Corruption Commission said Amzad and his family members have been trying to leave the country.
Denying the allegation, Amzad Hossain told The Business Standard, "I did not get any letter from the Anti-Corruption Commission or other law enforcement agencies regarding this."
"I am surprised to hear the allegation of financing anti-government activities. BNP activists murdered my younger brother immediately after their victory in 2001 national election. That was only because he was an election campaigner of Sheikh Helal, an Awami League leader of our constituency," he also said.
"It is a conspiracy against me. A group is trying to tarnish my image, nothing else," he added.
SM Amzad is the founder of Lockpur Group of Industries and the founder chairman of the SBAC Bank.
