Khaleda, Tarique sued for ‘issuing PM death threat'
Abdul Quader, information and research secretary of Chittagong (south) chapter of Awami League, lodged the case yesterday under Section 57 of the ICT Act. Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate ASM Shahidullah Kaiser accepted the case. Plaintiff’s counsel Abul Hashem said that the case was filed under the ICT Act. According to the case statement, Irad Ahmed Siddiky, a member of the BNP central executive committee, threatened to kill the prime minister in two separate statuses on his Facebook profile on September 15 and 25. Chowdhury Irad Ahmed Siddiky, son of BNP leader Chowdhury Tanbir Ahmed Siddiky, also allegedly made defamatory comments on Bangabandhu in a status on September 15. The plaintiff claimed that Irad could not have posted the statuses without the knowledge of the two top leaders of his organisation. Earlier, at least six cases were filed against Irad in different parts of the country over threatening the prime minister. The court, after accepting the case, ordered the officer-in-charge of Boalkhali police station in Chittagong to take the complaint as an FIR (First Information Report). “The court also ordered the OC to investigate the case. Now there is no legal bar to arrest the accused. The police can at any time arrest the accused from anywhere,” said Abul Hashem. “The persons who liked and commented on the Facebook post were also made accused in the case. However, the total number of the accused and their names were not mentioned in the case,” he added.
