The former manager of Jamuna Bank's Bogura branch, Shawgat Arman, and his three associates have been accused again of forging bank documents worth about Tk16 crore.
The current assistant vice president of the branch, Md Kamruzzaman Kamrul, has lodged a written complaint with the police. Police have forwarded the letter to the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) for an investigation.
Prior to this charge, another case was filed against suspended Shawgat Arman and several others for allegedly embezzling Tk12.16 crore from the same branch.
The latest complaint states that Shawgat Arman, in collaboration with some officials of the bank, forged tender documents and pay-orders worth around Tk16 crore from May 8, 2018 to July 23 this year.
These documents were used in the contracting work of various government organisations in Bogura and Sirajganj.
The bank authority was confirmed in a primary investigation that those fake bank documents were issued in favour of at least 100 companies, including M/S Amena Begum, Tumpa Enterprise and Shimu Construction.
ACC's Bogura office Assistant Director Md Aminul Islam is investigating the allegation.
