A Dhaka court today rejected bail of four former and incumbent officials of e-commerce platform E-orange and sent them to jail on expiry of their remand in a case filed over embezzlement of around Tk 1,100 crore.
The accused are former owners of E-orange -- Sonia Mehjabin and her husband Masukur Rahman, Chief Executive Officer Md Amanullah Chowdhury, and former Chief Operating Officer Md Nazmul Alam Russel.
Aminul Islam, inspector of Gulshan Police Station and investigation officer of the case, produced Sonia, Masukur, Amanullah and Russel before the court on completion of their remand in the case.
Metropolitan Magistrate Md Baki Billah passed the order after the IO produced them and appealed to the court to confine them in jail until the investigation is complete.
A customer -- Md Taherul Islam -- filed the case on August 16 over embezzlement of nearly Tk 1,100 crore, alleging that the platform did not deliver products he purchased on April 28 this year, according to the police.
In the case statements, the complainant said the products were supposed to be delivered within the agreed period but it did not happen.
