Earlier on January 13, the tribunal granted bail to Rita and two others after the accused surrendered before the court and sought bail in the case.

On December 2 last year, the court issued arrest warrants against three persons, including Baul singer Rita Dewan, in the case.

On October 29, Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI) Inspector Sheikh Md Mizanur Rahman, who is also the IO of the case, filed the probe report against the accused.

Imrul Hasan, a member of the Dhaka Bar Association, filed the case under the Digital Security Act on February 2. 

The judge then directed the PBI to investigate the allegations and submit a report.
