Industry Desk: The management committee, appointed by the High Court, has recovered some blank cheques by breaking one of the two lockers in the controversial e-commerce company Evaly’s Dhanmondi office.
Ninety-seven cheque books of Midland Bank and 10 of Citi Bank, and some other papers were found in first locker.
The locker was cracked in presence of the Dhaka South City Corporation Executive Magistrate Asfia Sirat yesterday.
Members of the management committee visited the Dhanmondi office at noon and brought the lockers out around 3pm.
Among the members, retired judge of the Appellate Division AHM Shamsuddin Chowdhury Manik and former Additional Secretary Mahbub Kabir Milon, who has been appointed managing director (MD) of Evaly, were present there.
AHM Shamsuddin Chowdhury Manik said the High Court directed Evaly chief Mohammad Rassel and his wife Shamima Nasrin to disclose the combination numbers of the lockers.
“But the committee did not receive anything from them so the decision of breaking the lockers was taken,” he added.
“We have already broken into a locker and found several cheque books. However, we are disappointed, because these are no longer valid. Another locker will be cracked and later it will be known what is in that locker,” he told the media.
Evaly CEO Mohammad Rassel and his wife Shamima Nasrin, also the chairman of the company, were arrested on 16 September last year over allegations of fraud and embezzlement.
