Abantika Baral, a ‘female friend’ of Proshanta Kumar  (PK) Halder, former managing director of NRB Global Bank and Reliance Finance Limited, is being questioned.

She is being interrogated for the third day from 12:00 pm at the ACC head office in Shegunbagicha in the capital on Wednesday. The interrogation is being held as part of a three-day remand. 

A team led by ACC deputy director Salahuddin is interrogating Abantika Baral in remand.

Earlier, Abantika was brought to the ACC office on Monday (January 25) and Tuesday (January 26) for questioning.

On January 13, ACC deputy director Salahuddin and his team arrested Abantika Baral from a flat in Dhanmondi and brought her to the ACC office. After appealing to the court for remand, the court granted a three-day remand to her. 

Abantika is accused of colluding with PK Halder to acquire non-profit assets and money laundering through various illegal businesses and illegal activities.
