She has been accused under the ICT Act for spreading rumours on social media

Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit has submitted charge sheet against actress Quazi Nawshaba Ahmed, for allegedly spreading rumours on social media, during the road safety movement last year. 

Investigation officer in the case – filed under the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Act 2006 – and CTTC Md Rafiqul Islam, submitted the charge sheet to the Court of Metropolitan Magistrate in Dhaka, on May 12.

However, the information was only disclosed to media on Monday, Sub-Inspector (SI) and General Recording Officer (GRO) of the same court, told Dhaka Tribune.

A total of 20 are listed as prosecution witness, the SI added.

According to the charge sheet, the accused intentionally revealed and disseminated false, and defaming information to tarnish the image of the country; deteriorate the law and order; and hurt public sentiment – all considered crimes under the ICT Act.

Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) detained Nawshaba from Dhaka's Uttara area on August 4, on charges of spreading rumours through Facebook, over the attack on students demonstrating in Dhanmondi for road safety.

In a live video on Facebook, Nawshaba claimed that the attackers killed two students, and gouged out the eyes of another at Dhanmondi's Jigatola intersection.

In her post, she also requested people to get united, and take to the streets to protect the students as they were being attacked by Bangladesh Chhatra League activists.

RAB filed a case against Nawshaba with Uttara West police station under the ICT Act.
