The company's Managing Director Kazi Sadia Hasan, wife of controversial stock market player Abul Khayer Hiru, was also found being individually involved in stock manipulation.
The capital market regulator Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission (BSEC) recently fined the group of stock manipulators including Monarch Holdings and Kazi Sadia Hasan and some other family members and entities of Hiru.
