The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) is conducting a raid on the house of e-commerce site Evaly CEO Mohammad Rassel amid allegations the company has been cheating its customers.
The raid began at 4:00 am on Thursday at his flat in Dhaka’s Mohammadpur, said Commander Khandakar Al Moin, a RAB spokesman, reports bdnews24.com.
The commander did not comment on what allegations had spurred the operation.
Rassel is also the CEO of the e-commerce company, while his wife Shamima Nasrin holds the position of chairman.
Both of them were at home during the raid, but RAB officials have not yet confirmed whether the two are to be arrested.
Earlier in the day, a fraud case was filed against Rassel and Shamima Nasrin for charging a customer for products that were not delivered.
A man named Arif Baker filed the case with the Gulshan police, claiming that he saw Evaly’s advertising and made orders worth Tk 310,000 from the site. The orders have yet to be fulfilled, long after they was made.
Baker contacted the Evaly offices and its CEO over the purchases and he responded with death threats, “frightening” the man, according to the police.
