Mahbubur Rahman, who started Tung Hai Knitting, died in a fire at his company's head office.
After his death, the company fell into a leadership crisis.
Following the failure due to mismanagement, the Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission (BSEC) has frozen the bank accounts of the company and its directors to protect the interest of general investors.
Also, for the violation of securities laws and regulations, the BSEC has fined its directors in November 2020.
