Erfan Selim, son of Awami League MP Haji Md Selim, has been jailed for a year after illegal guns, ammunition, liquor, walkie-talkies and handcuffs were found during a Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) raid at the MP's Old Dhaka residence.

Earlier on Sunday night, a video of Lieutenant Wasif Ahmad screaming for justice before the public after being assaulted by Erfan, his bodyguard, driver and a few accomplices went viral on social media.

The attack took place in the Kalabagan bus stop area at around 7:45pm on Sunday, when the military officer protested after his motorcycle was hit by Erfan’s car, which had a parliament sticker.

Later, a case was filed with Dhanmondi police station accusing four people – Erfan Selim, AB Siddique Dipu, Mohammad Zahid and driver Mizanur Rahman – over the incident.
