Anti- Corruption Commission (ACC) filed a case against former country manager of Biman Bangladesh Airlines Limited's London Station Akhtaruddin Ahmed for causing a loss of around Tk 1 crore.

The case was filed with Dhaka Coordinated Office, ACC-1 after the investigation.

Deputy Director of ACC Public relation office Muhammad Arif Sadeq told UNB that deputy director Mohammad Sirajul Haque filed the case.

According to the case, Biman Bangladesh signed an agreement with three companies for providing office equipment and telephone system in the city office of London during his tenure there.

Retired general manager (Marketing and Sales) Akhtaruddin renewed all agreements without any approval of the Biman head office which caused a loss of around TK 96 lakh.
