Thursday, 16 September 2021

The Rapid Action Battalion has arrested Evaly’s Managing Director and CEO Mohammad Rassel and his wife Shamima Nasrin who holds the position of chairman, amid allegations the company has been cheating its customers.

The RAB started a raid on their house at 4:00 pm on Thursday in Dhaka’s Mohammadpur, said Commander Khandakar Al Moin, a RAB spokesman.

Earlier in the day, a fraud case was filed against Rassel and Shamima Nasrin for charging a customer for products that were not delivered, reports bdnews24.com.

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.
