A Chittagong court has sent former joint secretary general of the Hefazat-e-Islam central committee Maulana Muhammad Chhalim Ullah to jail in a case filed for embezzling Tk5 crore from hundreds of customers of Ehsan Society, a financial institution.

Judge Kamrun Nahar Rumi of the Chattogram Chief Judicial Magistrate's Court on Sunday denied bail and ordered to send him to jail, said Sheikh Al Jabed, counsel for the plaintiff. 

According to court sources, Chhalim Ullah, the chief of the Ehsan Society of Nazirhat Municipality in Chittagong’s Fatikchhari, collected almost Tk5 crore from over one and a half thousand people by promising huge profits, claiming Ehsan Society as an Islamic Sharia-based interest-free institution.

In September 2018, customer Asaduzzaman filed the embezzlement case against 11 people, including Chhalim Ullah. On September 30 this year, the court issued arrest warrants against the accused in this case

Chhalim Ullah and the other accused became fugitives after the warrants were issued.

Plaintiff Asaduzzaman alleged that Chhalim Ullah, despite being a madrasa teacher, owns numerous luxury residential buildings and real estate in Chittagong, Cox's Bazar and Fatikchhari. Besides, he has huge sums of money in various banks.
