The detainees arrested in Dhaka and Narayanganj on Tuesday are Saima Akhtar, Al-Amin Babu, Mehedi Hassan, Muhammad Mamun and Asaduzzaman Asad. Police seized four mobile phones from the detainees during the arrest.
Mir Mohammad Shaharuzzaman Rony, now a fugitive from justice, was the lynchpin of the financial crime. He was employed to the bank as a senior officer in Dhaka, Hafiz Akhter, additional commissioner of the Dhaka Metropolitan Police, said on Wednesday.
Rony’s plan stole nearly Tk 25.7 million through 1,363 transactions, the police official said. Rony fled abroad, he said, adding that efforts were underway to find and arrest him.
A case under the Digital Security Act has been filed with Motijheel Police over the incident.
