Demanding Release Of Evaly CEO, Mohammad Rassel

During the raid, about 50 people identified as Evaly clients protested outside Mohammad Rassel’s home, demanding his release from the arrest.

One of them, who placed a Tk 16 lakh order with Evaly, told reporters that he started doing so in January of this year. Authorities should give Evaly some time so that it can continue to operate. Also, issue refunds or deliver products gradually, he said.

“How can we get the money back if the Evaly’s Ceo is arrested?”

Mohammad Al Amin, another customer, said, “Evaly requested a period of six months from the government. The government, in my opinion, should give them more time.”
