A court in Dhaka today has fixed October 21 for the submission of the investigation report against e-commerce company Evaly’s CEO Md. Russell and his wife Evaly’s chairman Shamima Nasrin in the case of embezzlement filed with the Gulshan police station.

Dhaka Additional Metropolitan Magistrate Muhammad Asaduzzaman Noor fixed the date on Thursday after accepting the case statement.

Evaly MD Mohammad Russell has been made the number one accused and Chairman Shamima the number two accused in the case. Several other officials of Evaly have been accused in the case by showing “anonymity”.

According to the case details, Arif had ordered goods worth Tk 3,10,597 from Evaly in May and June after seeing attractive offers on its website on May 29. But he did not get the products within the stipulated time. His friends also ordered products from Evaly and paid in advance.

The company was committed to refund the paid amount if the goods were not delivered within seven to 45 working days. As the products were not delivered, Arif called Evaly’s customer care several times and on September 5, for the last time, but no solution was given.
