Another case has been filed against 14 people, including Evaly CEO Mohammad Rassel and his wife Shamima Nasrin, chairman of the company, on charge of embezzlement and fraudulence.

Mohammad Quamrul Islam, another aggrieved customer and son of Junedul Islam of Old Paltan area, filed the case with the Dhanmondi Model Police Station on Friday, said its officer-in-charge Ikram Ali.

Akash, vice president of Evaly, Tanvir Alam, senior accounts manager, Zahedul Islam, manager, Jawadul Haque Chowdhury, senior executive, are among the accused.

Earlier, on September 17, RAB personnel arrested Evaly CEO Rassel and his wife Nasrin, at their Mohammadpur residence.

Rassel and Shamima were arrested after an aggrieved customer, Arif Baker, lodged a case with the Gulshan police station accusing them and few other company executives of embezzlement and fraudulence.

A Dhaka court on Friday placed them on a three-day remand.

Besides, the Bangladesh Financial Intelligence Unit (BFIU), an arm of the Bangladesh Bank that specialises in financial crime investigations, directed all the commercial banks and financial institutions through a common letter on August 27 to freeze all the bank accounts operated by top executives of Evaly.

The Directorate of National Consumer Right Protection, a department under the Commerce Ministry, received allegations from consumers about “cheating” by Evaly.

Bangladesh Bank officials said one of the major allegations against Evaly is forcing its consumers to deposit their money in the e-wallet of the firm which was totally illegal.
