A court in Dhaka today has granted a three-day remand to Evaly’s Managing Director (MD), Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mohammad Russell and its chairman Shamima Nasrin (Russell’s wife) in a case filed over embezzlement.

Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate court Atiqul Islam granted the remand on Friday. 

Earlier in the day, Mohammad Russell and his wife Shamima Nasrin were taken to custody. They were produced in the courtroom around 2.30 pm. 

Gulshan Police Station SI Wahidul Islam, investigating officer of the case, then appealed for a 10-day remand for a proper investigation into the case. 

On the other hand, Moniruzzaman Liton, the lawyer for the accused, appealed for bail seeking cancellation of their remand.

After hearing both sides, the Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate granted a three-day remand to the accused.

Earlier, the Russell couple was brought to Gulshan police station from the RAB headquarters at 1 pm. From there, they were later brought to the court.

Notably, RAB raided the house of Evaly MD Russell in the capital’s Mohammadpur at 4 pm on Thursday. The couple was arrested at 5:20 pm after the raid. Later, they were taken to the RAB headquarters and interrogated.
