The High Court has granted bail to social movement organization Rashtrochinta's organizer Didar Bhuiyan in a case filed against him under the Digital Security Act (DSA).

The bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman came up with the order on Monday after hearing a bail petition.

Advocate Hasnat Kaium, Dr Qazi Zahed Iqbal and Barrister Jyotirmoy Barua stood for the bail petition.

Earlier, the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) filed a case against 11 people under the controversial Digital Security Act with Ramna police station, claiming that their activities on social media led to confusion, instability and chaos among the people. 

According to the case statement, the RAB-3 cyber team received “secret information” regarding some people spreading false and fabricated information about the Covid-19 pandemic and against the government using several Facebook IDs.

It said RAB started screening some accounts and discovered a page — I am Bangladeshi — run by Facebook IDs—Saer Zulkarnain, Ami Kishore (in Bangla), Ashiq Imran, Philipp Schumacher, Swapan Jahid and Mustaque Ahmed.

 The Facebook page posted false information and rumours against Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the Liberation War and the Covid-19 situation, knowing full well that such information and rumours were false and intended to create confusion.

In the statement, RAB referred to some hyperlinks of the Facebook posts to substantiate its claim.

On May 5, Didar Bhuiyan was picked up from his Badda office in Dhaka by RAB under the DSA case, and later handed over to the police.

On May 7, 2020, a Dhaka court sent Didar Bhuiyan, along with 10 others, to jail over the case.
