Detective Branch (DB) of police on Monday submitted chargesheet against former DUCSU vice president (VP) Nurul Haque Nur in a case filed by musician Eliyas Hossain in the connection of abusing Awami League leaders and activist on Facebook live two years ago.

Muhammad Saiful Islam, Inspector of DB cyber and special crime department and investigation officer of the case, applied for issuing arrest warrant showing Nur as a fugitive.

The order was given to transfer the case to the Cyber Tribunal for trial. The following judicial proceedings of the case will be held there.

According to the chargesheet, the accused Nurul Haq Nur came on facebook live on 14 April 2021 and made “offensive, false, defamatory and provocative statements” against Awami League leaders and activists. It said his words also hurt religious sentiment and values.

On April 19, 2021, musician Eliyas Hossain filed the case with Paltan Police Station as a plaintiff.
