The Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police have filed a case under the ICT act against Mustak Muhammad Arman Khan, also known as Imam Mahdi.

The CTTC unit filed the case with Ramna police station in Dhaka on Saturday. 

The accused is currently in Saudi Arabia. Police will communicate with the Saudi Arabian government to arrange his extradition.   

CTTC unit Deputy Commissioner Saiful Islam said an inspector of the unit filed the case against Mustak on charges of religious misinterpretation and provocative speech.

Mustak Muhammad Arman Khan has used spread provocative speech through his YouTube channel for long time, claiming that he is a descendant of prophet Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) and that he has been nominated as Imam Mahadi in a dream, the DC added. 

Mustak graduated from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in 2016.

According to a CTTC unit source, Mustak left Bangladesh for Saudi Arabia in 2016 and is still living there. He has since released speeches calling for jihad on his behalf. 

Mustak has served as the leader of various organizations including Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind, where he was previously a soldier. 

On May 4, a CTTC unit team arrested 17 members of banned militant outfit Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen (JMB) from the Kakrail area of Dhaka. The CTTC unit said the JMB members were trying to travel to Saudi Arabia to meet Imam Mahadi. 

During the arrest, 19 mobile phones, Tk234,000, and $922 was seized from the JMB members.  During primary interrogation, the detainees admitted to being members of JMB.

Inspired by his ideals, the arrestees contacted him and were preparing to serve under him.

They contacted each other in mid-March.
