Police have arrested a youth, who often claims himself a leader of the ruling party, in a case filed for making derogatory comments about Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha on Facebook.

Sheikh Noman, 30, was arrested from a bus counter in Sreemangal town around 4:30pm Friday, Sub-Inspector Rashedul Alam Khan told the Dhaka Tribune.

He went into hiding after a lawyer, Md Enayet Kabir Mintu, filed the case under Section 57 (2) of the ICT Act on April 2.

According to the case, Noman gave a post on his Facebook profile on March 21. He said that the chief justice had questioned the judiciary by attending political programmes.

Lawyer Mintu said that on behalf of vested interests, Noman had tried to defame Chief Justice SK Sinha and make him controversial by making such remarks.

The lawyer claimed that Noman was an active member of Chhatra Dal’s Sreemangal unit. But locals say he is close to Awami League and Chhatra League leaders.
