Court orders police to file a report on May 15 following investigation

A case has been filed under the Digital Security Act against Sefat Ullah, alias “Sefuda”, a Bangladeshi expatriate living in Vienna, Austria, for reportedly vilifying the Quran on social media.

Lawyer Md Alim Al Razi filed the case at Dhaka Cyber Crime Tribunal on Tuesday, reports BSS.

Later, the tribunal’s Judge Ash-Shams Jaglul Hussein asked the police Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit to file a report on May 15 after probing the case.

The plaintiff alleged that Sefat Ullah, notorious for his controversial remarks made on Facebook live, had vilified the Quran on April 9.

Alim said he and many others were offended by this act and decided to turn to the law to bring Sefat Ullah to justice.
