Shakib serves legal notice to Banglalink, Jamuna Bank ; demands Tk 5.8 crore fine

Cricketer Shakib Al Hasan has sent  a legal notice to telecom operator Banglalink and Jamuna Bank demanding fine for illegally using his photos and brand image for business purposes.

Shakib’s  lawyer Ashraful Hadi sent the notice through registered post on Sunday seeking Tk 5,80,50,000 fine  from these organisations.

Both the organisations have been asked to remove Shakib’s photos, brand, signature etc used in different places for business purposes within seven days.

The companies have been warned of legal action for failure to follow the notice.

According to the notice, on January 21 in 2014, a deal was signed between Shakib and Banglalink Digital Communication Ltd for using Shakib’s popular brand image on a limited scale for their business purpose.

Although the deal expired on January 20, 2016, the company continued to use the brand image of the Bangladesh team cricket allrounder and then he  decided to send a legal notice, said barrister Ashraful Hadi.
