Biography Timeline


In 1978, Sobhan started the East West Property Development (Pvt) Ltd., now known as Bashundhara Housing. He currently leads group of enterprises consisting of nearly three dozen medium to large ventures steel and engineering, paper, tissue, cement, LP Gas, sanitary napkin, multi-paper, dredging, shipping, food and beverage, galvanised iron pipe, etc. He has an estimated wealth of about 50,000 crore BDT.


In October 2007, Ahmed Akbar Sobhan, his wife Afroza Begum, and their 4 sons were sentenced to 8 years of imprisonment on charges of tax evasion. During the 2006–08 Bangladeshi political crisis, Sobhan handed over the power of attorney for Bashundhara Group to a nine-member committee while he was absconding in London with his family. During the tenure of this committee, the Bashundhara Group paid more than Tk. 220 crore to the government as compensation for evading earlier taxes. This move was taken despite Sobhan's opposition and he retaliated by withdrawing the power of attorney for 4 officials of the nine-member committee. Another charge was that Sobhan and his family amassed wealth worth about Tk. 107 crore beyond their known sources of income and amassed Tk. 606.66 crore illegally while also concealing information about Tk. 14.17 crore. The charge sheet for the case mentioned that around Tk. 500 crore was whitened by the family. In December 2012, a case was filed against Sobhan, his son Sanvir, and 2 company officials for misappropriating nearly Tk. 40 crore from a businessman. The plaintiff (the chairman of a spinning mill) filed the case claiming that he was owed 3 plots from the East West Property Development Ltd. The 4 accused were later acquitted of the charges.


Sobhan and his family have been at the center of many controversies. In 2008, the Criminal Investigation Department of Bangladesh pressed murder charges against Sobhan's second son Shafiat Sobhan (Sanvir) for killing Humayun Kabir Sabbir in July 2006. Sabbir was a director of Bashundhara Telecommunications Network Ltd. and his body was found in the outskirts of Bashundhara Residential Area. The case was presented in court with 35 witnesses, including two sex workers who were eyewitnesses. The two eyewitnesses narrated how the murder took place. The proceedings took place 2 years after the murder incident because Ahmed Akbar Sobhan paid Tk. 21 crore to the then Bangladeshi Home Minister Lutfozzaman Babar to suppress the case and help his son Sanvir flee abroad. A CID investigation in 2007 brought this into limelight along with the fact that the BNP senior vice-chairman Tarique Rahman also received money in exchange for helping Sanvir flee. It is alleged that Tarique demanded Tk. 100 crore in order to help with this case. Sanvir and all the other accused in this case were later acquitted in 2011 by a lower court.

Family Life

Ahmed and his wife Afroza Begum had four children: Sadat, Shafiat, Saeyem, and Safwan.
