The court has fixed September 17 as the date for submitting a report against six people including actor and businessman Anant Jalil in the case of fraud.

On December 26 last year, a businessman named Shafil Nawaz Chowdhury filed the case as a plaintiff in the court of Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Saiful Islam.

In view of the application of the case to the court, he accepted the statement of the plaintiff and ordered the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) to investigate the complaint and submit a report.

In the application of the case, the plaintiff mentioned that on October 17, 2022, the defendants placed an order with the plaintiff in the name of Polo Composite Company for some works related to garments. After that the plaintiff started work and asked for the promised money against the work, the defendants asked to continue the work and said that they would pay the money through LC. Later they ordered several more works.

Until March this year, the plaintiff explained all the works to the defendants. Then on March 15, the defendants made an LC to the plaintiff in Mercantile Bank for payment of Rs. Later when the plaintiff approached the bank for the money, he failed to withdraw the money due to errors in the LC documents.

The petition further states that although the plaintiff has completed the work as per the contract, the company owned by Anant Jalil has not yet paid any amount, amounting to about 29 thousand 200 dollars.
