A Dhaka court has summoned Rassel and Nasrin in these two cases

Fashion brand "Rang Bangladesh" has filed two cases of check dishonour accusing Evaly CEO Mohammad Rassel and his wife Shamima Nasrin, chairperson of the controversial online marketplace.

The cases were filed in the Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) court for failing to cash the checks received for the sale of "gift vouchers," Rang Bangladesh informed on Thursday.

Later, the court issued summon orders against Rassel and Nasrin in these two cases.

According to Rang Bangladesh, Evaly authorities sent gift vouchers from them to the buyers but did not clear a major part of the payment. Although contacted several times, the authorities did not give a satisfactory answer and delayed the payment through various excuses.

Besides, when the Rang Bangladesh authorities tried to cash one of the check received from Evaly, it was found that the check was from a closed bank account. The other check was also dishonoured as there was not enough money.

As they did not receive the payment, Rang Bangladesh cannot not allow customers to make purchase with those gift vouchers. However, they promised to activate the vouchers as soon as the payment is cleared.

Rassel and Nasrin were arrested in another case on September 16, after allegations of fraud and embezzlement rose against Evaly in light of the company’s failure to deliver products.

The couple has already spent multiple days in police remand in two cases filed with Gulshan police. They have been accused in a number of cases around the country since the controversies started.

Earlier this month, the Commerce Ministry had asked the Home Ministry to take legal actions against Evaly for violating laws and deceiving customers.

The company had informed the Commerce Ministry that they owe Tk311 crore to customers and Tk206 crore to the merchants. However, following his arrest, Rassel told RAB that Evaly owes over Tk1,000 crore to customers and merchants.
