CEO of controversial e-commerce platform Evaly Md Rassel was granted bail by a Dhaka court on Thursday in nine cases of cheque fraud.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Court judges passed the orders during a hearing on the bail petitions submitted by Rassel’s lawyer advocate Ahsan Habib.
However, he will not be able to walk out of jail now as he did not secure bail in other cases.
On April 6, Rassel’s wife Shamima Nasrin, Chairperson of Evaly, walked out of Kashimpur Women’s Central Jail after the court granted them both bail in another six cases on condition of settling the case with the plaintiffs in different times.
On September 16, last year, Evaly CEO Mohammad Rassel and his wife Shamima were arrested during a raid on their house in capital’s Mohammadpur area.
The owners of Evaly were allegedly involved in embezzlement of several hundred crores of taka. They were arrested after a victim filed a case against them.
Arif Baker lodged a case with Gulshan police station accusing the couple of stealing customers’ money and fraudulence.
The couple was later sent to jail .
