Nur said he will go for legal action against the media houses if they do not offer apology

Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (Ducsu) Vice-President (VP) Nurul Haque Nur has accused three media houses, of publishing a portion of his telephonic conversation with an ill motive.

He came up with the allegation in a press conference held at the Madhur Canteen on the Dhaka University (DU) campus on Thursday.

Noting that every citizen has a personal life, the Ducsu vice-president said by circulating this audio clip, the media outlets, including two private television channels, have interfered in his personal issue which is unacceptable, reports UNB.

“This has created confusion among people about me and tarnished my image,” said Nur.

Terming the conversation completely personal and business-related in nature, he claimed that he was talking to a man he knew about a bank guarantee of Tk13 crore for his aunt's construction firm.

Issuing a 24-hour ultimatum to those three media houses, Nur said he will go for legal action against them if they do not offer apology.

A conversation between the Ducsu vice-president and an expatriate Bangladeshi over monetary contract was leaked on a private channel on December 3.

In the audio clip, the expatriate asked Nur to send his bank account along with an e-mail address.
