E-orange CEO, 2 ex-owners held
The CEO of e-commerce site E-orange and two former owners of the company were recorded as arrested yesterday in a case filed over the embezzlement of around Tk 76.41 lakh.
This would be the third case in which E-orange CEO Aman Ullah Chowdhury and former owners Masukur Rahman and his wife Sonia Mehjabin have been arrested.
Aman has been in jail since August 18, a day after Masukur and his wife Sonia were sent to jail in connection with a different case filed over the embezzlement of around Tk 1,100 crore.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Rajesh Chowdhury passed the latest order after Sub-inspector Zakir Hossain of Gulshan Police Station sought permission to show them as arrested in the case, court sources said.
The case was filed on August 31 by a consumer named Ishtiaque Hossain Titu.
He accused suspended police inspector Sheikh Sohel Rana, known to be a patron of E-orange, his wife Naznin Nahar Bithi, and eight others of misappropriating Tk 76,41,102.
Sohel was caught by the Indian Border Security Force on September 3 while fleeing Bangladesh.
