The 19-yr-old  shared a post describing “how to rape”, according to RAB 

The Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) has detained a teenager for allegedly posting provocative statements on the ongoing anti-rape movement and sharing posts inciting rape on the social media.

Sheikh Mohammad Saraf Nawar, 19, was detained by the elite police unit from Dhaka’s Khilkhet area on Saturday.

Requesting anonymity, a RAB official said the teenager shared a post describing “how to rape a girl” on social media, encouraging rapists.

The RAB said in a media statement that they recovered the mobile phone used to post the provocative statements and two screenshots of the teenager’s posts on the anti-rape movement.

According to Squad Commander Mushfiqur Rahman Tushar of the RAB-1, Saraf is involved with a teenage gang and he posted provocative statements from his Facebook account, in an effort to be a social media celebrity.

Legal actions will be taken against him, he added.

The RAB official also said a group of people is trying to create chaos and manipulate the anti-rape movement through social media. RAB 1 cyber monitoring team has been able to identify this group.

Protests against the growing incidents of rape, sexual harassment, and violence against women are continuing in different parts of Bangladesh.

Waves of anti-rape demonstrations erupted across Bangladesh after video footage of five men gang-raping a housewife, stripping her naked, and filming the video of the incident in Noakhali’s Begumganj upazila, went viral on social media on October 4.

The incident occurred at Joykrishnapur village under Ekhlaspur union of the upazila on September 2.
