Rab arrests youth for Facebook posts against anti-rape protests, inciting rape

Rab arrested a youth from Dhaka's Khilkhet area on charge of making provocative posts on Facebook, against anti-rape protests and inciting rape incidents.

Sheikh Mohd Sharaf Nawar (19) was arrested yesterday morning, said Mushfiqur Rahman Tushar, a squad commander of Rab-1.

The Rab official said at a time when citizens are protesting rape and other violence against women and children, some people are trying to create chaos by making provocative posts on social media. The arrestee even uploaded a post describing "how to rape a girl". Screenshots of some of the posts went viral, with demand to arrest him.

Rab has already identified at least five others who made similar offence, the Rab official said.

A resident of Adabar area, Nawar is apparently a member of a local juvenile gang. He left the area after netizens demanded his arrest.

A case was filed with Khilkhet Police Station under Digital Security Act and the accused has been handed over to the police.
