The High Court has barred controversial e-commerce platform Evaly from selling or transferring its assets during a hearing on a writ petition filed by a customer.
Justice Muhammad Khurshid Alam Sarkar issued the court order on Wednesday in response to a plea filed by Farhad Hossain.
Hossain had ordered a washing machine from Evaly 10 months ago, but even after paying for the product, he has not received the product yet.

The court has fixed September 30 as the next date of hearing on the issue. It also issued a ruling, asking authorities why liquidators should not be appointed for the company.
Earlier in the day, another customer of Evaly filed a case against its chairperson Shamima Nasrin and her husband and company Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mohammad Rassel.
One Md Mujahidur Rahman pleaded to accept his case with the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Devdas Chandra Adhikari after not getting an air-conditioner from the company in spite of paying the full price. Accepting the case, the court asked Dhanmandi police station to file it as a first information report (FIR).
