Police have arrested the ex-husband of a woman following a complaint on a Facebook page run by Police Headquarters (PHQ).

The arrestee was identified as Atiqul Islam Babu. He was arrested from Ramna area of the capital on Sunday.

Md Sohel Rana, AIG (media) at the PHQ, said that a man on February 9 sent a message to the inbox of Bangladesh police Facebook page, run by Media and Public Relations Wing of Bangladesh Police, that a lady was being harassed by her ex-husband Atiqul Islam Babu in various ways. The woman is living a very scared life.

The informant then sent an audiotape to the Bangladesh Police Media and Public Relations Wing using digital media as evidence of highly obscene abuse, threats and harassment.

Bangladesh Police Media and Public Relations Wing contacted the woman and has found the proof of the incident. The woman’s ex-husband had been harassing her for a long time showing that he has communication at the highest level of administration and government.

In this regard, Bangladesh Police Media and Public Relations Wing informed OC Ramna about this and directed him to take necessary action. Later, a team led by DB Web-Based Crime Investigation ADC Md Ashrafullah arrested the accused on February 21 from Ramna area.

Incidentally, the arrested Babu is a convicted fugitive accused in a case. He has recently returned to the country after a long stay abroad.
