Officer-in-Charge (OC) of Lalbagh Police Station MM Morshed confirmed the matter to the Dhaka Tribune.

He had a case against him of Tk4,000, but did not pay the amount. On Thursday, he was stopped and fined Tk1,000 for not wearing a helmet, Deputy Commissioner of Lalbag Traffic Division Mehedi Hasan said. 

According to police sources, Ilias Mia was later taken to the Lalbag police station for questioning.

The OC said the man had come to Dhaka a month ago and took up ride-sharing as a job after suffering heavy losses in business during the Covid-19 pandemic.

On September 27, another biker, Shawkat Ali, set his motorcycle on fire after a traffic sergeant "attempted to file a case" in Dhaka's Badda area.
