A customer today filed two separate cases against chairman of scam-hit e-commerce platform Alesha Mart.
"Abdullah Al Mamun filed two cases, one for dishonouring cheque and another for not supplying him motorbikes in spite of paying the price in advance, against Alesha Mart chairman Manjurul Alam Sikder," plaintiff's lawyer Khademul Islam told BSS.
