Popular News

A Dhaka court on Tuesday accepted a charge sheet against lone accused photojournalist Shafiqul Islam Kajol in a case filed under the Digital Security Act (DSA).

Judge Ash Sams Joglul Hossain of the Dhaka Cyber Tribunal passed the order after scrutinising the case dockets and other relevant documents and fixed October 20 for the hearing on charge framing in the case.

The court also granted permanent bail to journalist Kajol after his defence counsel Jaydur Rahman submitted a bail petition seeking the bail.

Awami League lawmaker from Magura-1 constituency Saifuzzaman Shikhor filed the case against 32 people, including Kajol, with Sher-e-Bangla Nagar Police Station on March 9 last year on charges of publishing “false news and circulating it on social media”.
