Shomi Kaiser acquitted in defamation case

A Dhaka court has acquitted Actress Shomi Kaiser in a defamation case.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Satyabrata Sikder issued an order relieving Shomi Kaiser of the charges on Friday after receiving the final report by the Police Bureau of Investigation (PBI).

The PBI filed the final report in the defamation case for calling journalists 'thieves' on Wednesday for not having witness.

PBI inspector Lutfar Rahman submitted the report to Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Satyabrata Shikder.

‘No witnesses were found while investigating the case’ – said Inspector Lutfar Rahman in the report.

On April 30 in 2019, Students Journal BD editor Mia Md. Nuzhatul Hachan filed the case with Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Asaduzzaman Noor.

On April 24 in the same year, Shomi Kaiser’s two mobile phones were stolen from the opening ceremony of e-commerce-based tourism site 'Bindu 365' at the Zahur Hossain Chowdhury Auditorium of the Jatiya Press Club.

Shomi complained that journalists had stolen her mobile phones. Her bodyguards searched the bodies of journalists. Whoever tried to get out of the scene, the body guards called them 'thieves'. The journalists felt insulted.
