Miscreants broke into Jatiya Party Chairman HM Ershad's Banani office on early Tuesday and stole around Tk 43 lakh in cash, claim leaders of the party.
The money was stolen from the room of Ershad’s personal staff Jahangir Alam and stole the money, the party's office secretary Sultan Mahmud told media.
The amount was kept in a safe, meant to clear the pay of office staff and some to be spent for repair work of Ershad’s residence in Rangpur, he said.
Office staffs noticed the broken door of the locker and informed Jahangir about it. It was then found out that the entire cash sum was stolen from the safe.
The party filed a theft suit with Banani Police Station in connection with the incident. Police went to the scene after hearing the news, said Gulshan Police Deputy Commissioner Mushtaq Ahmed.“The four security guards on duty were interrogated,” he said.
