Popular lyricist, composer and music director Ethun Babu filed a general diary (GD) against singer Mainul Ahsan Noble for allegedly defaming him on Sunday. The renowned musician filed the GD with Hatirjheel police station in the capital around 10:00pm.

Ethun Babu himself confirmed the matter to the media.

Ethun Babu said, “I am insulted by singer Noble as he has recently posted a status on his Facebook calling me thief”.

 “The Process of filing a case against the singer over defamation charge is underway”, Babu added.

Earlier on May 17, a general diary (GD) was filed with the Kalabagan police station in Dhaka by Somoy Media Ltd, seeking necessary action against singer Mainul Ahsan Noble for allegedly threatening Somoy TV journalist Al Kachir.

Recently, Noble has come under fire for a series of social media posts trolling iconic musician Faruq Mahfuz Anam James. Later, he claimed that his account had been hacked.

Previously, Noble was sued in Tripura on May 25, 2020 under Indian Penal code sections 500 (punishment for defamation), 504 (intentional insult), 505 (public mischief) and the Information Technology Act, for allegedly defaming Indian PM Narendra Modi on social media.
