DSA case against ex-DUCSU VP Nur dismissed

A Dhaka court has dismissed a case filed under the ‘Digital Security Act’ against former DUCSU vice president (VP) Nurul Haque Nur.

On Thursday (April 27), Dhaka Cyber Tribunal judge AM Zulfiqar Hayat was scheduled to take cognizance of the chargesheet in a case filed against VP Nur for making derogatory comments about Awami League activists and supporters on Facebook Live.

However, the court rejected the chargesheet against Nur after acquitting him of all charges and ordered the case to be dismissed.

The chargesheet was submitted on February 28 to the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate's Court in Dhaka by Inspector Mohammad Saiful Islam of the Cyber and Special Crime Division of DB police, the investigating officer of the case.

In the chargesheet, Nur was declared a fugitive and the investigating officer sought an arrest warrant against him. Later, the case was transferred to Dhaka Cyber Tribunal for trial.

On April 19, 2021, musician Eliyas Hossain filed the case under the ‘Digital Security Act’ with Paltan Police Station as a plaintiff.
