A new case has been filed on Sunday against controversial e-commerce platform Evaly's former chairman Shamima Nasrin and her husband ex-chief executive officer Mohammad Russel for embezzling of Tk 2.6 million 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.
The magistrate recorded the statement of the complainant and directed officer-in-charge of Dhanmondi Police Station to register it as a regular case, said public prosecutor Azad Rahman.
In her complaint, Jannatul said after being attracted with advertisements of Evaly, she ordered goods worth Tk 2.6 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 branch of the United Commercial Bank Ltd.
Following the incident, the complainant informed Evaly about it and the company promised her to repay the money. But she didn’t get the money even in last six months, she mentioned in the complaint.
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, more embezzlement cases were filed against the couple at Dhanmondi Police Station and in courts.
After serving jail for about eight months former chairman of Evaly Shamima secured bail and released from jail on April 6 this year. On the other hand her husband Russel, who is also the founder of the Evaly, still in prison in the cases.
