'They embezzled money and committed digital fraud by spreading false information on their website, as well as their social media handles'

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on Monday said that controversial online ticketing agency 24tkt.com had embezzled around Tk50 crore in the past two years.

Additional Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police Kamrul Ahsan spoke of this development at a press conference at CID headquarters.

“They are facing charges of fraud, embezzlement and money laundering. They embezzled money and committed digital fraud by spreading false information on their website, as well as their social media handles,” Ahsan added.

M Mizanur Rahman Sohel, a director of the ticketing agency, also the head of Bangla daily Jugantor’s online team, was arrested by a team from the Cyber Police Center of the CID from Sadarghat area of the capital on Sunday.

He was arrested in a case filed under the Money Laundering Prevention Act filed by the CID at Kafrul police station.

Earlier on October 4, cops also arrested Rakibul Hasan, mastermind of the 24tkt.com from Chuadanga, who was an adviser to the organization and sibling of Chairperson Nasreen Sultana.

The online ticketing agency started its journey in May 2019.

On October 3, Musa Mia, who owns Unique Air Travels International, filed a fraud case against the 24tkt.com authorities with the Uttara West police station.

The owners of other affected agencies filed cases against the members of the board of directors of 24tkt.com with various police stations. 

Nasreen, her brother and managing director Abdur Razzak, directors Asadul Islam, Pradyot Baran Chowdhury, and M Mizanur Rahman Sohel have been sued in separate cases filed with Kafrul, Paltan and Dhanmondi police stations.
