Police on Thursday submitted a charge sheet against three people, including exiled Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasrin, under Section 57 of the ICT Act on charges of hurting religious sentiments.

Nazmul Nishat, inspector of The Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP), submitted the charge sheet on October 3 to the Dhaka Chief Metropolitan Magistrates court in the case.

The two others named in the charge-sheet are Editor of Women Chapter Supriti Dhar and acting editor Shucheesmita Simonti.

CTTC, however, dropped the name of the “Women Chapter” advisor Lina Haque from the charge sheet as the investigation officer (IO) failed to collect the address of the accused during the probe.

Showing the accused as a fugitive in the charge sheet, IO also applied before the court to issue an arrest warrant against them.

On April 26, 2018, Muhammad Mahbub Alam, editor of the monthly Al Bayyinat filed the case with Cyber Tribunal in Dhaka against the four people on charges of hurting religious sentiments.

Following the allegation, the court asked the Shahjahanpur police station to record the allegation as a case against the four people including Taslima Nasrin.

According to the case, complaints against the accused that an article of Taslima Nasrin regarding a rape incident was published at the Women Chapter news portal that allegedly hurt the religious sentiments of people.
