A Dhaka court has ordered actor Quazi Nawshaba Ahmed to appear before it on July 14, after rejecting her lawyer’s presence on her behalf on Tuesday.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Md Didar Hossain issued the order.

Earlier on Monday, it was revealed that the Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit had submitted the charge sheet against Nawshaba.

Investigation officer in the case and CTTC official Md Rafiqul Islam submitted the charge sheet to the Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court on May 12. The case was filed under the ICT Act 2006, according to the general recording officer (GRO) of the court.

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

According to the charge sheet, the accused intentionally revealed and disseminated false and defamatory information to tarnish the image of the country, deteriorate law and order, and hurt public sentiment during the road safety movement– 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 an attack on students demonstrating in Dhanmondi for road safety.

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

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

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