Case filed on fraud charges seeking refund
A case was filed on Wednesday against seven people including owners of the ecommerce platform Eorange in Chittagong on fraud charges.
The accused are Eorange owner Sonia Mehzabin, her husband Masukur Rahman, Chief Operating Officer Aman Ullah, Bithi Akter, former chief operating officer Zaidul Firoz, Nazmul Alam Russell and former police officer Sheikh Sohel Rana.
A customer named Nurul Abshar Parvez filed the case with the court of Chittagong Metropolitan Magistrate Hossain Mohammad Raza.
It has been alleged that even after paying the full amount in advance, the products remained undelivered for months.
The court took the case into cognizance and directed the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) to investigate it and take action.
Plaintiff's lawyer Golam Mawla Murad said: “Eorange has cheated millions of customers across the country. We have filed a case with the court seeking refund.”
On September 2, a Dhaka court sent Sonia Mehzabin, Masukur Rahman and Aman Ullah to jail in a fraud case filed over embezzlement of Tk1,100 crore from consumers.
Earlier on August 23, Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Morshed Al Mamun Bhuiyan placed the accused on a 5-day remand in the fraud case.
On August 17, the court sent them to jail rejecting their bail prayers when they surrendered to Dhaka Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Abubakar Siddique's court.
On August 16, an aggrieved customer of Eorange, Md Taherul Islam, filed a fraud case with Gulshan police station in presence of 37 other customers who testified against the accused.
