The government has taken initiative to implement the court order to bring back the defaulter Icha Badsha (Mohsin), the leader of Chittagong-based industrial company Badsha Group, back to the country from Canada.

According to the information of the Chittagong Financial Debt Court, the judge mentioned in the order-Shahjalal Islami Bank, Eastern Bank, Mercantile Bank, Exim Bank and various banks and financial institutions have cases against Icha Badsha in this court. In these cases, the default amount is more than 500 crore rupees.
The businessman and his family never appeared in the case of these banks; He did not give the power of attorney.
The order said, 'The judicial proceedings against the money laundering debtors are not succeeding as they are absconding abroad. Important working hours of the court are wasted behind these cases. Due to which the caseload is increasing. In this situation, it is necessary to take necessary legal measures to bring the debtors living abroad back to the country in order to succeed in the judicial proceedings for recovery of defaulted debts.'
