Today, a Dhaka court sent Md Amanullah Chowdhury (chief executive officer of E-orange e-commerce platform) to prison in connection with an embezzlement case involving around Tk 1,100 million. The order was passed by Abu Bakar Siddique, Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate and Inspector of Gulshan Poli Station, who also served as investigation officer in the case. He requested a 10-day remand pray for him to be quizzed. However, the court set August 23 as the hearing date for the remand petition in the case. Yesterday, Amanullah was arrested by police in the Gulshan district of the capital for allegedly embezzling money from customers. In the meantime, a Dhaka court issued travel bans against five people in the same case, which included two former owners of Eorange.
