Shakib Khan summoned in fraud case

DHAKA: A Dhaka court Wednesday summoned popular film-actor Shakib Khan to appear before it on May 19 in a fraud case filed for his alleged misappropriation of money.

Film-producer Monowar Ehtasham, also the Chief Executive Officer of Judge Multimedia, Wednesday filed the case with the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court.

According to the complaint, on December 7 last year, Sakib signed a deal with Judge Multimedia for performing in two films. Schedules for him were set as per deal.

Sakib demanded a total of Tk 60 lakh for his acting remuneration and he took Tk 40 lakh in advance. But he did not turn up for the acting performance on the scheduled day and the authorities wanted to know the reasons. At that time, he got angry and denied having taken Tk 40 lakh in advance.

“At one stage, when the authorities of the company wanted refund of the money, Sakib threatened them,” adds the case statement.

Earlier, Shish Monowar and Abdul Aziz got bail from the case filed by Sakib Khan against five persons for allegedly threatening to “kill’ him.

Moreover, the artistes of the Film Development Corporation (FDC) are continuing work abstention in protest against terrorist attack on Sakib Khan on April 16.

Responding to the demands by various organizations, FDC authorities are taking preparation to file case against the attackers on Sakib Khan, an FDC source said.

When contacted, Sakib Khan told banglanews, “The date for performing in the film of ‘Anya Rakam Bhalobhasa’ was not fixed due to mismanagement of the producers and directors and it is known to all involved with the film. A vested quarter is making conspiracy against me. I will face the matter legally.”
