CID Additional DIG Kamrul Ahsan said, “We have written to Bangladesh Bank on Thursday to freeze Dhamaka’s bank account. This action has been taken as part of the ongoing investigation into various e-commerce companies.”
There are allegations against Dhamaka Shopping, which started its business last year, for not shipping the products or paying refunds on time for the advance money it has taken from the customers for many orders it had received under lucrative schemes.
On June 30, the Financial Intelligence Unit (BFIU) of Bangladesh Bank started looking into the bank accounts of Alesha Mart, Sirajganj Shop, Aladin’s Pradeep, Boom Boom, Adian Mart, Needs, Qcoom, Dalal Plus, Orange and Bajaj Collection, including Dhamaka Shopping.
Following the publication of a report in The Business Standard on the Bank of Bangladesh’s inspection report on Evaly, various private sector banks, including BRAC Bank and Bank Asia, have suspended card transactions for e-commerce firm Evaly, Alesha Mart, Dhamaka Shopping, Sirajganj Shop, Aladin’s Lamp, Boom Boom, and Adian Mart.
