Controversial e-commerce platform Evaly's former chairman Shamima Nasrin and her husband ex-chief executive officer Mohammad Rassel were sued today (July 3, 2022) for embezzling of Tk 26.77 lakh from a customer.
Jannatul Ferdous, a resident of Savar's Hemayetpur, filed the case against the couple at Metropolitan Magistrate Debdash Chandra Adhikary's court.
Tthe magistrate recorded the statement of the complainant and directed officer-in-charge of Dhanmondi Police Station to register it as a regular case.
In her complaint, Jannatul said after being attracted with advertisements of Evaly, she ordered goods worth Tk 26,77,500 and paid all the money at Evaly's account. But the company failed to supply the ordered products.
She then asked Evaly to return the money she paid. Five cheques which were given to her bounced in September and November last year after those were deposited at Hemayetpur's United Commercial Bank Ltd.
Following the incident, the complainant informed Evaly about it butthe company said it would not repay the money.
Rapid Action Battalion on September 16 last year, arrested Rassel and Shamima during a raid at their residence in the capital's Mohammadpur, in an embezzlement case filed at Gulshan Police Station.
Later, five other embezzlement cases were filed against the couple at Dhanmondi Police Station and in courts.
