The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed a case on Wednesday against frmer chief justice SK Sinha.

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) filed a case on Wednesday against frmer chief justice SK Sinha and 10 others of accumulating illegal wealth and laundering Tk 40 million.

On 25 September last year, the ACC summoned five officials of the Farmers Bank Ltd for interrogation over deposit of Tk 40 million in SK Sinha's account with the bank.

On 6 May, ACC interrogated two businessmen - Md Shahjahan and Niranjan Chadra Saha - for allegedly taking Tk 40 million in loan from the Farmers Bank using fake documents and depositing the money in the bank account of a VVIP.

Sinha, the former chief justice of the country, went on leave on 2 October, 2017, and left for Australia on 13 October amid a row over some of his observations in the 16th amendment verdict.

On 11 November, 2017, Sinha resigned from his post of chief justice.
