A case has been filed against Regent Group Chairman Shahed Karim on charge of swindling a Chattogram-based businessman out of Tk91.25 lakh.
Md Saifuddin, younger brother of the victim, filed the case with Double Mooring Police station in the port city on behalf of Mega Motors, said Sadeep Kumar Das, officer-in-charge of the police station.
Apart from Shahed, another person named Shahidulla was also charged in the embezzlement case, he told The Business Standard.
The plaintiff of the case Saifuddin said Shahed and one of his associates took Tk91.25 lakh in several instalments from Zia Uddin Mohammad Jahangir, owner of Mega Motors, tempting him to allow 200 vehicles of the company to operate in Dhaka city.
Later, Shahed Karim provided Zia with a fake route permit document. After it came out that the document was fake, Shahed Karim offered to resolve the issue through discussion. However, he had been spending time in various ways for a long time.
Meanwhile, Mega Motors' owner Zia Uddin Mohammad Jahangir has fallen ill. As his younger brother, Saifuddin has resorted to the law at the last stage to resolve the issue.
Double Mooring police station's OC Sadeep said in the case statement, the defendants have been accused of embezzling money by making fake documents.
Investigation into the case has started, the OC added.
