Dhaka — A Dhaka Metropolitan court has ordered to send Sonia Mehjabin, owner of e-commerce company E Orange, and her husband Masukur Rahman to jail in a case of embezzling Tk1,100 crore from customers.
On Tuesday, the couple has surrendered in the court of Dhaka Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Abu Bakar Siddique through a lawyer and applied for bail.
Upon hearing, the court rejected the bail application and ordered send them to jail. Gulshan Police Station will look after this case.
A customer named Taherul Islam, a customer of E Orange, filed the case with Gulshan Police Station on Monday night. At the time, 37 other victims of the fraud were present and testified with him.
In this case, Taherul Islam alleged that he paid in advance to E Orange on April 21 to buy the product.
However, E Orange did not deliver the product on the due date, nor did it refund the money. They have repeatedly given notices on their Facebook page, asking for time. But did not give goods and money.
The last time they communicated about the delivery of goods from the office located at 5 / A, Road No. 136/137 / Gulshan-1, but they did not supply. Also, the outlets are not offering products against the vouchers as they have kept the money of the gift vouchers sold by them.
“We are not getting hard-earned money during this time, but we are getting new information about the change of ownership of the company,” he said.
Also, to date, the company has fraudulently embezzled around Tk1100 crore from one lakh victims without delivering any product to the victims.
