  • January 15, 2024

A court in Dhaka today issued arrest warrants for Mohammad Rassel and his co-founder wife, Shamima Nasrin, in connection with a bounced cheque case. Rassel was the former CEO of the controversial e-commerce site Evaly.

They were given a summons and got it on time, but the couple did not show up today to appear before Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Md. Ali Haider, according to Sadikur Rahman Tamal, the lawyer for the prosecution.

The judge told the person in charge of Mohammadpur Police Station to give a report by February 27 on how the arrest warrants for the people in question were carried out.

The case statement says that on March 13, 2021, Md. Tanvir Hossain, one of Evaly’s clients, paid Tk 2.45 lakh to the company to buy a motorcycle after seeing an ad for it. But the business did not send the motorcycle within the 45-day window that was given.
