E-orange CEO sent to jail over embezzlement of Tk 1,100 crore
In connection with a case filed over embezzling over Tk 1,100 crore, a Dhaka court today sentenced Md Amanullah Chowdhury, the chief executive officer of e-commerce platform E-orange, to jail.
After Md Aminul Islam, inspector of Gulshan Police Station and case investigation officer, produced Amanullah and requested a 10-day remand prayer to question him, Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Abu Bakar Siddique issued the order.
The court, on the other hand, has scheduled a hearing on the case’s remand petition for August 23.
Amanullah was nabbed by police in the capital’s Gulshan neighborhood yesterday for allegedly embezzling money from customers.
Following an application, a Dhaka court granted a travel ban against five people in the same case, including two previous proprietors of E-orange.
Former E-orange owners Sonia Mehjabin and her spouse Masukur Rahman, Amanullah, Bithi Akter, and Kausar Ahmed are among the five.
According to the police, a customer, Md Taherul Islam, filed a charge against the five on Monday night, accusing them of embezzling nearly Tk 1,100 crore and stating that the platform has not delivered merchandise purchased since April 28 this year.
The complainant stated in the case statements that the products were intended to be supplied within a certain time frame, but that this did not occur.
