He allegedly insulted and threatened another lawyer in court

Police have arrested Senior Advocate Shah Alam, former president of Satkhira Bar Association, in a case filed under the Digital Security Act for insulting another lawyer.

He was arrested from his residence in Satkhira’s Polashpole area at 2:30pm on Sunday.

Confirming the matter, Satkhira Sadar police station OC Delwar Hossain said the senior advocate had been presented before a court following his arrest.

Advocate Abdul Latif filed the case on April 27 after being allegedly insulted by senior advocate Shah Alam in court.

According to the case statement, the virtual bail hearing of the accused in a rape case was held on April 26, during which Public Prosecutor Abdul Latif opposed the bail on behalf of the state.

Shah Alam, the defendant’s lawyer, then hurled insults at and threatened Abdul Latif in response, which was heard by the judge and other lawyers as well.

In such circumstances, the law-and-order situation was on the verge of deteriorating, Abdul Latif said in his case statement.

On the other hand, Shah Alam reported several lawyers, including Abdul Latif, to the police over an attack on his chamber on April 27.

They had threatened to kill him and damaged some of his possessions, Shah Alam claimed.

Satkhira Sadar police station Inspector Burhan Uddin on April 28 said Shah Alam’s complaint was being investigated and legal action would be taken based on the findings.
