Dhaka — Saiful Khan, a resident of the Kaptanbazar area of Cumilla Nagar filed a case against e-commerce company E-Orange in Comilla No. 1 Court on Sunday afternoon for embezzling Tk3 crore 96 lakh 81 thousand 311 from a customer.
Narail Awami League MP and former national cricket team captain Mashrafe bin Murtaza and five others from E-Orange have been named as defendants in the case.
The court judge directed Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Masudur Rahman to take cognizance of the case and submit an investigation report to the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) by November 16.
Saiful Khan, the plaintiff in the case, mentioned in the statement that 39 customers paid Tk3 crore 96 lakh 81 thousand 311 to e-Orange on different dates to buy various products including motorcycles.
But the company did not deliver the goods on the due date. It even wraps up official activities. In this situation, a case was filed against the officials of the organization.
The official name of E-Orange is E-Orange Dot Shop. It is a company that got a trade license from Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) two years ago.
The name of the owner of e-Orange in the trade license form mentions Sonia Mehjabin, father Sheikh Abdus Salam, and mother Nazma Salam.
The victims recently staged a protest in front of E-Orange's office in Dhaka's Gulshan and in front of the e-Orange's former brand ambassador Mashrafe bin Murtaza's Mirpur residence.
The Ministry of Commerce has issued a show-cause notice to e-Orange. The notice was issued last week by the Commerce Ministry's Central Digital Commerce Cell. It has asked e-Orange to account for the assets within seven days.
The notice further said that the number of assets, liabilities, and working capital should be stated till July 31. If there are arrears with the suppliers, the amount should also be informed.
