On Friday, the Enforcement Directorate raided over 10 locations in North and South 24 Parganas of West Bengal to arrest three men, who along with their partners, cheated several hundred crores of Bangladeshi taka and siphoned off the money to India.

The Enforcement Directorate in a statement mentioned that the prime suspects are Bangladeshi nationals Proshanta Kumar Halder, Pritish Kumar Halder, and Pranesh Kumar Halder. All the suspects had fraudulently obtained Indian citizenship papers.

An ED official said, “The money siphoned from Bangladesh was used for buying a huge quantity of land and property in Bengal and Kolkata. The money was taken as loans from various banks by companies that only exist on paper. Realizing that they had been cheated, the banks informed the financial intelligence unit of the Bangladesh police that subsequently approached the Indian government.”

According to reports, Prashant Kumar Halder has been living in Bengal posing as an Indian statement. The ED statement noted that he used the name Shibshankar Halder after procuring a ration card issued by the Bengal government, an Indian voter ID card as well a PAN and Aadhar card. The investigation agency also found that his associates also managed to acquire similar documents.

The ED officials found that the suspects had established companies in India on the grounds of these documents and also purchased the immovable property in multiple places, including Kolkata. The money embezzled in Bangladesh was siphoned to other countries as well.
