Dhaka: A case has been filed in the Jashore district against Mohammad Rassell, CEO of e-commerce company Evaly, who is in remand police custody for embezzlement. The case was filed at Jashore Judicial Amli Court (Chougachha area) on Tuesday afternoon.
The plaintiff in the case is the son of Shafiqur Rahman of Jahangirpur village of Chaugachha upazila’s Moshahedur Rahman. In the statement of the case, it has been said that the MD of Evaly did not give the product with the money, and later on July 25, Tarafdar Md. Moshahedur Rahman was given a check of Tk. 1 lakh 77 thousand by the National Bank.
However, the check was dishonoured as there was no money in the bank account. MM Joynal Abedin, counsel for the case, said, “The court accepted the case under section 138/140 and issued summons to the accused. It directed the accused to appear in person on November 3.”
Earlier on September 18, a man named Jahangir Alam Chanchal, the founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of Jessore Kotwali Model Police Station, said. Russell and Chairman Shamima filed the case in the name of Nasrin.
In the case, Jahangir alleged that on May 29, he ordered a Pulsar motorcycle from the Indian Bajaj Company worth Tk1,30,140. Then, he paid the full amount in a few installments.
The product was supposed to be delivered within 45 working days of payment. He did not get a motorcycle for three and a half months.
In a case of a victimized customer, RAB raided the house of Mohammadpur on the afternoon of September 16 (Thursday) and arrested Shamima Nasrin, chairman of Evaly, and her husband and CEO of the company Mohammad Russell. Then another customer filed another case against them at Dhanmondi police station.
The court on Tuesday granted a one-day remand to Rassell in a fraud case filed at Dhanmondi police station.
However, the court did not grant Shamima Nasrin’s remand application and directed to send her to jail.
