Supreme Court lawyer Sayedul Haque Sumon filed the case on Monday under section 26, 29 and 31 of the act for spreading a video on social media on Feni madrasa girl Nusrat Jahan Rafi’s statement at the police station.

According to the case statement, the OC called Nusrat to the police station on 27 March after she filed a case against Maulana Siraj Ud Doula, principal of Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa, for sexually harassing her.

During interrogation at the police station, he asked her offensive and unpleasant questions over the incident. Later, the OC spread the video on social media.

Dhaka Cyber Tribunal judge Ash-Shams Jaglul Hussein is likely to hear the case after 2:00pm.

Earlier, the OC was withdrawn on 10 April as Nusrat family’s alleged that they were not getting proper cooperation from him.

Nusrat, a student of Sonagazi Islamia Senior Fazil Madrasa in Sonagazi upazila of Feni, was set ablaze on 6 April allegedly for refusing to withdraw a case filed against principal Siraj Ud Doula of the madrasa for sexually harassing her last month.

After fighting for her life for five days, the madrasa girl died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital on April 10.
