The Bangladesh Bank has launched a special drive to find out suspicious transactions having links with terrorist outfits. The central bank initiated the move soon after the arrest of the heads of the two Islamic terrorist organizations involved in August 17 serial bomb blasts and suicide bomb attacks across the country.
The Bangladesh Bank 's Anti-Money Laundering Department assigned three teams to conduct investigation into three bank branches -- one each of three commercial banks -- Monday to find out suspicious transactions in the name of banned Islamist outfits.
Meanwhile, the Bangladesh Bank 's Sylhet office has already deputed a team to conduct investigation into alleged suspicious transactions at the Biswanath branch of Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited.
Matiur Rahman Choudhury has more on the story.
