Madhabpur police station OC Md Iqbal Hossain confirmed the matter.
He said that in 2013, Mohammad Adil Hossain, a businessman from Madhabpur municipal area, opened an FDR account of Tk 85 lakh at AB Bank Madhabpur branch. At that time Syed Mahmudul Haque was the manager of Madhabpur branch of the Bank. He embezzled the money without depositing it in the bank.
