Nagad has filed a case with a Dhaka court against 10,000 unknown people for their alleged involvement in spreading rumours against the digital financial service.
The case was filed with the Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court on Thursday seeking action to this end, according to a press statement.
The court, taking the case into cognizance, asked the Police Bureau of Investigation (PIB) to investigate the matter and submit a report by April 20 this year, said the statement.
