The first suspect took over these amounts mentioned in the papers which are owned by the victim company by deceitfully falsifying information technology data. He put 313 thousands and 200 BD in the bank account of the victim company as a trick to deceive the partners that they exceeded the targeted revenue and thus he received one million, 607 thousands and 804 BD.

He was also accused of falsifying data of information technology of the victim company. In addition, the suspect changed the percentage of partners and due revenues and changed his stock percentage in the victim company from 18.83% to 20 and 40% from 2011 to 2014.
