A case was filed against Chairman of Regent Group Md Shahed over misappropriating Tk 91.25 lakh from a motor parts importer in Chattogram city.
On behalf of M/S Mega Motors' owner Zia Uddin Mohammed Jahangir, the company staff Saifuddin Mohsin filed the case with Double Mooring Police Station this evening accusing Shahed.
Mega Motors alleged in the case that Md Shahed's Regent KCS Limited embezzled Tk 91.25 lakh through fraud, said Jahir Hossain, inspector (investigation) of Double Mooring Police Station.
Another person, Shahidullah (60), was also made accused in the case, our Chattogram correspondent reports quoting the police official.
According to the case statement, Shahed assured Jahangir that he will manage BRTA authority to get route permit for three wheelers (CNG run auto-rickshaw) of the importer in Dhaka city.
In this regard, Shahed took Tk 32 lakh cash from Jahangir on January 22 in 2017.
From January 25 to March 5 of the same year, Shahed was given Tk 59.25 lakh in total.
Later, Shahed handed over a photocopy of a circular signed by BRTA chairman to Mega Motors which stated that route permit for 200 CNG-run auto-rickshaws were given.
After getting the document, Mega Motors contacted BRTA authority, and the latter identified it as "fake circular".
"Shahed had assured Mega Motors that he will help us get BRTA's permission for three wheelers in Dhaka city and he took Tk 91.25 lakh in total for the purpose," plaintiff of the case Md Saifuddin told our correspondent.
"He had handed over a photocopy of a circular signed by BRTA chairman which stated that permission was given for 200 CNG-run auto-rickshaw to ply in Dhaka city but after verification we came to learn that it was fake," he said.
"When we realised that he cheated us, we told him to return the money but Shahed started acting up," said Saifuddin.
"We had tried a lot to negotiate with him to get the money back but now we filed the case as all ways are closed," he added.
