12 April 2015, Nirapad News: A special court of Dhaka on Sunday has deferred the hearing of Dandy Dying loan default case till May 17. Judge Fatema Ferdous of Dhaka Money Loan Court-1 fixed the date for next hearing in the morning.

Earlier on March 16, BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia, wife and two daughters of Arafat Rahman Koko were made accused in Dandy Dyeing loan default case as he died.

Acting Judge of Dhaka Money Loan Court-1 Rokshana Aktar Happy passed the order and fixed April 12 to submit High Court order and formation of issue.

After Koko’s death, Sonali Bank filed petition with the court including Khaleda Zia and Arafat Rahman Koko’s wife and their two daughters to fight the case.

On October 2, 2012, Nazrul Islam, senior executive officer of a local branch of Sonali Bank, filed the case with the Artha Rin Adalat (Money Loan Court) for default of loan involving Tk 45.59 crore.

Moreover, BNP senior vice-chairman Tarique Rahman and his younger brother Arafat Rahman Koko, Shams Iskander, Shafin Iskander, Sumaiya Iskander, Nasrin Ahmed, Tarique’s business friend Gias Uddin Al Mamun, Mamun’s wife Shahina Begum, Gazi Galib Abdus Sattar, Shamsun Nahar and Masud Hassan were made accused.

According to the case, during the BNP rule in 1992, Dandy Dyeing Limited Company started its operation with a capital of Tk 3 crore. The following year it took bank loan of Tk 13.14 crore.

Later, in 1996, Sonali Bank further sanctioned loan accumulating to Tk 42.70 crore. Meanwhile, in 2001, the Sonali Bank authorities had written off the interest amount equivalent to Tk 12.16 crore.

But the accused have not paid the loan yet though the bank issued final letter for payment on February 28 in 2010.
