National

Dhaka:  A court here today placed e-commerce  company Evaly Managing Director (MD) and Chief Executive Officer (CEO)  Mohammad Rassel on one day fresh remand in another case of money  embezzlement.

Dhaka Additional Metropolitan Magistrate Hasibul Haque passed the order  as police produced Rassel and his wife and Evaly Chairman Shamima Nasrin  before the court after the end of their three-day remand in a money  embezzlement case lodged with Gulshan Police Station.

Police after that pleaded for seven-day fresh remand of the couple in  another money embezzlement case filed with Dhanmandi Police Station. Defence  however, argued for their bail. After hearing both the sides, the court  placed Rassel on one day remand, while sending Shamima Nasrin to jail.

Earlier on September 17, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Atiqul Islam had  placed Rassel and Shamima on three-day remand in the case filed with Gulshan  Police Station. One Arif Baker, a customer of Evaly, filed the case with  Gulshan Police Station.

Mohammad Rassel and Shamima Nasrin were detained from their Mohammadpur  flat in the afternoon on September 16.

According to the case documents, Arif and a couple of his friends  ordered some products through the e-commerce platform in the months of May  and June. But they didn’t get any product in spite of paying the money in  advance. They repeatedly called the Evaly customer care numbers, but they  didn’t pay any heed to their calls.

On September 9, they went to the Dhanmandi headquarters of Evaly, where  Evaly staff along with its CEO threatened them and said they (victims) would  neither get their money, nor the products.
