The sub committee formed by the finance minister grilled Tanvir for more than an hour from 3:00pm.

On September 3, a parliamentary body on the finance ministry formed a sub-committee to investigate the Hall-Mark affair.

A Bangladesh Bank probe found the Ruposhi Bangla branch had lent the money to the Hall-Mark Group between 2010 and May this year on forged documents.

The group is one of six companies that have borrowed Tk 3,547 crore from the branch illegally with the help of some bank officials.
