A Dhaka court on Tuesday sent two of the owners of the online marketplace to jail rejecting their bail prayers in a case filed against them.

The police have arrested Amanullah, the Chief Operating Officer of the e-commerce company E-orange, after being accused of embezzling Tk 1,100 crore from consumers.

The operation was carried out in the capital’s Gulshan area on Wednesday night, August 18.

Earlier, one of the consumers had lodged a case against the platform with 37 others who testified against the owners of the platform.

As per the case file, Md Taherul Islam, like many others had ordered products from the online platform and despite paying in advance they did not receive the product nor any refunds. Gift vouchers issued by the platform were also not redeemable, complained the consumer.

A Dhaka court on Tuesday sent two of the owners of the online marketplace to jail rejecting their bail prayers in a case filed against them. 

According to the case details, the owners of E-orange, Sonia Mehjabin, her husband Masukur Rahman, Amanullah, Bithi Akhter, and Kawser, stand accused of embezzling a total of Tk1,100 crore.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Abu Bakkar Siddique issued the order after Sonia Mehjabin and her husband Masukur Rahman surrendered before the court seeking bail in the case.

Sub-inspector Md Alamgir Hossain, general recording officer of Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court, confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune.

Following demonstrations and the case filed by the consumer, the Ministry of Commerce gave the platform seven days to provide details of the company’s assets, liabilities, current capital holding, and its deficit to merchants, as of July 31 this year.

The platform will also have to provide information on the number of pending orders customers are yet to receive despite paying in advance, as well as the amount of payment it had received from customers within the same period.

The court has also banned the five accused in the customer's case from leaving the country.
