Md Ismail Hossain (39), owner of NN Fish Company, who allegedly embezzled about Tk 3 crore from Chittagong fish traders, was arrested from Hazrat ShahJalal International Airport in Dhaka.

He was arrested from the immigration wing of the airport and taken under control by Sadarghat police station of CMP on Friday (June 21) .

Md Ferdous Jahan, officer-in-charge of Sadarghat police station, confirmed the matter. 

He said, "Earlier we arrested two people in the case filed by fish trader Habib. Today the prime accused Ismail was arrested by the Immigration Police of Dhaka Airport."

On February 2, a fish trader named Mohammad Habib filed a case against three people at the Sadarghat police station, alleging fraud of Tk 3 crore.
According to the statement of the case, Ismail bought sea fish worth Tk 80 lakh from Habib several times in the month of February. He paid Tk 30 lakhs in two installments. The remaining Tk 50 lakh was supposed to be paid on February 19.

On February 19, when Habib's manager sent Saddam for money, he found the office of Ismail's firm NN Fish locked. Ismail also turned off the mobile phone. He had not been found since then.

According to sources, Ismail, owner of NN Fish Company at Sadarghat area in the city, used to buy fish from fish traders and deliver it to different parts of the country. Noman and Sagar looked after his business at commission.
Abu Yusuf, president of Karnaphuli Fish Traders Cooperative Association, said, "Our fish trade is based on trust. But after embezzling Tk 3 crore from traders, Ismail fled abroad."

Last February this year, Ismail bought fish worth about Tk 3 crore from different fish traders. Later, when the businessmen asked Noman and Sagar for the due money, they declined to pay the money. In the same month, a case was filed at Sadarghat police station with Ismail as the main accused.

Al Amin Prakash Noman (39), an employee of Ismail, and Kaushar Ahmed Sagar (35), manager, were arrested from Charpatharghata area of Karnaphuli upazila in the early hours of May 9.

Later, the businessmen confirmed that Ismail had embezzled a large amount of this money and left for Dubai. The immigration police of Dhaka airport arrested him on Friday morning and handed him over to Sadarghat police station of CMP in the afternoon.
