A Dhaka court on Friday sent hacker Md Naimur Rahman alias Nayeem to jail in a case filed for spreading rumour on Facebook over coronavirus.

Metropolitan Magistrate Sadbir Yeasir Ahsan Chowdhury passed the order after police produced him before the court on completion of his one-day remand in the case. Defence lawyer submitted bail petition for Nayeem but the court rejected the plea after hearing.
