Hefajat violence in Brahmanbaria: MP files DSA case against former Hefajat leader, 18 others
RAM Ubaidul Moktadir, MP of Brahmanbaria-3 constituency, has filed a case against 19 named accused including Hefajat-e-Islam's dissolved central committee joint secretary general Sajedur Rahman for tarnishing his personal image by holding a press conference after the violence in Brahmanbaria.
The case was filed yesterday, under the Digital Security Act (DSA) with the court of Chattogram Cyber Tribunal Judge SKM Tofail Hasan.
Besides 19 named accused, hundred more unidentified persons were accused in this case.
MP Ubaidul said, "Leaders and activists of Hefajat-e-Islam carried out massive violence in Brahmanbaria for three days from March 26 to 28. On March 31, they held a press briefing putting all the blame on me to save themselves."
Since journalists were not present at the press briefing they promoted the briefing videos over Facebook and YouTube.
His image was tarnished through the propaganda, so MP Ubaidul appeared in person to file the case at Chattogram Cyber Tribunal, he said
The court has been requested to direct PBI to investigate the case, plaintiff's lawyer HM Ziauddin said.
