The same case is with other associates of Halder, the official added.

"The ED has found out that these Bangladesh nationals have also managed to float companies in India on the basis of fraudulently obtained identities and have even purchased immovable properties at various places including some posh areas in Kolkata. Proshanta Kumar Halder and other associate persons are accused in a multi-million financial fraud in Bangladesh," officials said.
