FENI: A 26-year-old youth has been arrested under the Digital Security Act (DSA) for “defaming” Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in a Facebook post.

Nurul Afsar, 26, is from Feni’s Amirabad union and works as a bank office assistant in Janata Bank.

“On March 26, a Facebook page called ‘AJ Limon Juktorajjo BNP’ made an ‘offensive’ post about the prime ministers of Bangladesh and India. The accused wrote defamatory words about the prime ministers while commenting on that post,” he said.

As Faruk came across the post, he handed over Afsar to Sonagazi Model Police Station and also filed a case against him under the Digital Security Act in connection with the incident, Sajedul Islam, officer-in-charge (OC) of Sonagazi Model Police Station, confirmed.
