Adam Tamizi Haque, chairman of Haque Group, was shown arrested in a case filed under the Digital Security Act in the capital's Dakshinkhan police station.

Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s Detective Branch (DB) chief Additional Commissioner Harun-or-Rashid confirmed the development in a press briefing at the DB office on Minto Road around 10:30pm on Saturday.

He was taken to the DB office from Gulshan this evening.

Besides, his wife also lodged a complaint against him.

"We will try to find out why he burnt his passport and spread propaganda against the government on social media," Harun-or-Rashid added.

The DB chief also said that if they think he is mentally ill during the interrogation, he will be sent to rehabilitation for psychiatric treatment. And if it seems that he did all the things to spread propaganda against the government, legal action will be taken against him, he added.

Earlier, a case was filed against him under the Digital Security Act with Dakshinkhan Police in Uttara in the capital.

According to the case statement, Adam Tamizi Haque made various objectionable, defamatory and provocative statements against Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and also threatened to kill the Prime Minister on his Facebook page several times.

He recently captured the public's attention following a series of perplexing live appearances on social media.

Among the latest, on November 17, Adam Tamizi claimed to be a Christian follower by cutting his beard and mustache and sought the citizenship of Israel.

He also requested the Israeli government's assistance to rescue him from Bangladesh as soon as possible.

In recent times, Adam Tamizi Haque took to Facebook to announce that a State Minister from Gazipur was attempting to seize his business, compelling him to return to Bangladesh from overseas to safeguard his enterprise.

He then conducted a series of Facebook Live sessions, during which he controversially burnt his passport and made disparaging remarks about women in leadership, the Awami League, and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

In response to his actions, he was swiftly relieved of his party position, and the Dhaka City North Awami League suspended him. They also declared their intent to investigate the motives behind his perplexing Facebook Live broadcasts.

When contacted, several Awami League leaders dismissed Haque's claims that the party had extorted a staggering sum of Tk1,000 crore from him as preposterous and baseless.
