Police have arrested a youth from Khulna regarding a case filed by an officer of the United States (US) Embassy in Dhaka.

A team of Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) held the youth named Samir, 20, from his house at New Market in Sonadanga on August 21.

The team seized 164 porno photos of 30 girls of three countries, including the US, from his mobile set and laptop.

A  Dhaka court placed him on a two-day remand after he was produced before the court.

Issuing remand order, the court sent the boy to jail on Saturday.

According to the CTTC, Samir is the second year student of Computer Science at an engineering university in Rajshahi.

The youth used to make relationship with teen girls through Discord App.

He later took their porno photos plying various tricks.

On July 26, Michael Lee, an officer of the US Embassy in Dhaka, filed a general diary (GD) with Gulshan Police Station, alleging that one Samir got acquainted with a 13-year-old girl of California in the US through the Discord App.

He allured the teen girl to give her porno photos. Later, he took the photos through the app and his email.

The mother of the teen lodged a complaint with Home Ministry of the US in this regard. Upon the complaint, the US Embassy officer lodged the GD. 

On August 21, the officer filed a case against Samir with the same police station.

Saiful Islam, additional deputy commissioner (CTTC) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP), said they arrested the accused.

During interrogation, the arrestee said he kept the photos not for sale.

The officer said Samir was taking preparation to go to Australia. As his parents did not allow him to go outside, he was addicted to mobile phone. He developed perverted mind for loneliness, said the police officer.

Ishtiaq Ahmed, additional deputy officer (CTTC) of the DMP, said police found 164 porno photos of 30 teen girls of the US, Canada and Australia from phone and laptop.
