Three people including a Union Parishad (UP) chairman were arrested in connection with humiliating the imam of a mosque in Barisal's Mehendiganj upazila.

Mostofa Rardri, UP chairman of Darirchar Khajuria union and Abdus Sattar, a former union council member of Barisal’s Muladi upazila, and another Bazlu, were arrested in connection with the incident on Thursday, reports Bangla Tribune.

The humiliated imam, Shahidul Islam alias Alauddin, filed a case against them and a few others on the same day.

According to sources, Shahidul, imam of a local mosque and clerk of Khajuria Dakhil Madrasa, allegedly embezzled the scholarship money of students, amounting to Tk4,800. He was also accused of misappropriating insurance money of Tk20 lakh.

The UP chairman and some members put a garland of shoes around his neck after tying up his hands, and took  photos of him as punishment.

Video footage of the incident went viral on Facebook shortly afterwards, causing outrage on the social media platform.
